  • Madrid, Spain – A “green zone” at Madrid’s COP25 climate summit is dedicated to showcasing innovative projects and encouraging dialogue among direct action groups in relation to fighting climate change.
  • Along with launching such initiatives, Juventud por el Clima also organises demonstrations every Friday and holds talks in schools, street theatre performances and workshops.
  • Rather than turning biowaste into compost, one groundbreaking solution being proposed by the EU cities of Kozani, Madrid, Albano Laziale and Lund, alongside waste management companies and technology developers, is the transformation of biowaste products such as urban sewage into high value-added products including bioplastics and foodstuffs.
