The agora was a central spot in ancient Greek city-states and the literal meaning of the word is “gathering place” or “assembly”. The UrbanWINS online urban agoras were a virtual space for discussion, where the project team shared its developments and outcomes, and where all stakeholders were invited to express their needs and wants.
Online Urban Agoras
Every citizen is an important voice in his/her city. Developments and outcomes of UrbanWINS were shared in the online urban agoras and participants were invited to express their views on how they perceive waste management and prevention in their cities, as well as their needs and wants.
You can still join them to share information with other people. The community is multilanguage and available in English, Català, Español, Italiano, Português, Româna.
Face-to-Face Urban Agoras
Participants of the face-to-face agoras helped the consortium to understand the situation of their cities and have a better knowledge of how people perceived waste management, what their needs or problems were. At a second stage, members of the agoras discussed the results and the findings of the project, and how they thought results can be translated into actions.
