Last week, 100 environmental professionals discussed practical solutions and shared best practices on the fight against illegal shipments of waste. The event was organized at the City Hotel Ljubljana by the Slovenian Inspectorate for the Environment and Nature, a member of IMPEL - The European Union Network for the Implementation and Enforcement of Environmental Law. The selected venue is distinguished by a convenient central location and is very suitable for this size of meetings.

IMPEL currently has 48 members from 34 countries including all EU member states, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Turkey, Albania, Iceland, Switzerland and Norway. For almost 20 years Slovenia has been actively involved in working groups, projects, workshops and conferences and the time has come for hosting the annual TFS conference also in its capital.
Bojan Počkar, Inspector for the Environment, pointed out: “We were delighted to host an event, which is of high importance for the developments in the waste management, in our capital. Ljubljana, with its smallness and hospitality, was a perfect place for such a meeting.

Since Ljubljana was awarded the European Green Capital 2016, waste will also be one of the main topics for next year. You can find more information, such as Zero Waste case study, on the official website.
