2 PREVENT working groups intensify their collaboration

The PREVENT working groups focusing on plastic and packaging waste are planning to work closer together in the future. The final decision on how exactly this should look like will be made at the PREVENT General Assembly on 8 May 2020 in Munich, Germany.

Working group 1 on conserving resources and working group 2 on closing packaging cycles have agreed to merge their working meetings. The reason for this are clear thematic overlaps, because of which a well functioning exchange is not only interesting but also very relevant for all organisations involved. During the general assembly in May, the plenary will take the final decision on a formal merge of the 2 working groups, hereafter the structures and scope of activities would be adapted accordingly.
In this context, discussions are currently underway on whether a new working group should be created or not. The PREVENT secretariat will soon send a survey to all members and partners, in which they can express their opinion and, if interested, suggest suitable key topics for a new working group.
