On 6 March 2019, (60) partners of the Interreg MED Green Growth Community gathered together to join the “Thematic Working Groups on Circular economy” event, bringing us one step closer to translating our objectives into policy outputs.

The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), HYDROUSA H2020 and SCREEN H2020 projects were also invited to this event, sharing their valuable experience and letting us further explore our potential for collaborative activities. 

During the event, the outline of the Green Growth Green Book, policy recommendations, legal recommendations and white papers were presented.  A dedicated workshop on white papers also took place, summarizing the challenges and problems, success factors, conclusions and key project outputs of each TWG.

The (4) TWGs of the Green Growth Community are formed in line with the EU Action plan on Circular Economy, featuring the thematics of: production and consumption- resource efficiency, production and consumption- smart and green public services, waste prevention and management, competitiveness and innovation.

TWG parallel sessions were organized focusing on the debriefing of the Green Growth policy outputs and the analysis of the modulars projects’ contributions.
