Citizen Blogging

The blogging experience of talented and curious writers on eco-innovative activities for waste prevention and management

In our project community, engagement is a big part of the story. Citizen Bloggers live in the UrbanWINS cities and are able to discover how eco-innovation happens locally, through attractive and accessible stories told in the local language.

Citizen Bloggers tasks could include e.g. interviewing local stakeholders, reporting from local meetings or contributing to the project’s online platform.

Here are the selected bloggers to be part of our project:
