Activity 6.2

Raising Awareness Event in Tinos Island 

 

In the framework of Activity 6.2, the raising awareness event of the ISWM-TINOS project took place at the Cultural Centre of Pyrgos in Tinos, on June 10th, 2013, in the afternoon. The event was organized by the Municipality of Tinos (TINOS – Coordinator), in cooperation with the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), the University of Verona (UNIVR) and the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH/CPERI) (beneficiaries).

During the raising awareness event, the participating households and businesses were clearly informed on how to participate in the project, what their service rules are, what will happen to their recycling after it is collected, and what are the expected results of its implementation. For this reason, optical material (oral presentation), informative brochures and cards and extensive discussion with the project team were used as means of training and information-sharing.

The Mayor of Tinos attended the event and invited the residents to embrace the effort. The project team answered many questions of the participants regarding recycling issues. The event achieved its goal, to enhance environmental awareness level and engage with residents in participating in the pilot scheme. Therefore, high participation level in the forthcoming implementation actions of the project is expected.
