Infocycle aims at addressing the problem caused by the environmentally unsound WEEE management by all stakeholders, informing them about the harmful impacts arising, as well as training them on the sound WEEE management in the Regions of Thessaly and Epirus. To achieve this objective, informative actions and training activities will be implemented. More precisely, a Roadshow will be held, during which on-site collection of WEEE will take place and an exhibition area, which simulates sites of a treatment plant will be set. The Roadshow will be promoted through a series of local campaigns addressed to the public of the towns involved and will communicate the main idea of the Project. Each local campaign will include radio, on-line communication, as well as publicity activities. Furthermore, training activities will include day-long workshops held for informing all stakeholders involved in the WEEE management chain and on-site training of the associated beneficiaries.
