In the framework of the LIFE Environment Project Capacity Building in Sustainable Public Procurement, a thematic workshop entitled Sustainable Procurement in Local Authorities was organized on September, 14th in the premises of the Local Union of Municipalities of Thessaly. The meeting was organized by EPTA, Ecological Recycling Society and Municipality of Agia, in collaboration with the Municipality of Larissa and the Local Union of Municipalities. A total of 11 representatives from regional authorities and stakeholders attended to the meeting, whose objective was to disseminate SPP in the region of Thessaly in order to assess the situation and the awareness level of the regional authorities and stakeholders. The main outcome of this workshop was the prioritization of products and services for these local authorities. However, one of the most important results was the low awareness level about Sustainable Public Procurement and the need for further information and training to those decentralized Authorities. The event was extensively covered by the local press.
