Consume-Less project “Consume Less Mediterranean Touristic Communities” aims to significantly reduce waste in terms of energy, water and waste at locel level. The project focuses in particular on the specific nature of the tourist areas, within which it’s necessary to define and implement policies for sustainability aimed at reducing the consumption of water, energy and the production of waste, through the deployment of different types of actions that take into account the particularities of the tourist areas.
The project is included in the definition of an integrated and sustainable management strategy of water and energy, the results of which will be tested and monitored (form 2) and subsequently forwarded to the competent authorities to be capitalized and transferred (form 3) to other territories, with the active involvement of a wide range of local, regional and national actors.
