The Geological Survey of Slovenia has organized Slovenian SNAP-SEE stakeholders’ consultation for stakeholders on the field of Aggregates Planning. The title of the event was Aggregates supply in Slovenia. The event took place in the premises of the Geological Survey of Slovenia on Thursday 24th October, 2013 with the opening of the meeting at 10:00 AM and closing at 2:00 PM. The aims of the SNAP-SEE stakeholders’ workshop were:

– To present the project with its objectives and results to be achieved.

– To share knowledge gained in the preceding SARMa project and to inform stakeholders with the first results of the SNAP-SEE project.

– To define main obstacles in increasing the recycling rate of construction and demolition waste, to define better ways for environmental-friendly aggregates extraction and do find future challenges for better aggregates planning in Slovenia.

- To initiate a discussion related to upcoming Slovenian mining strategy.

There were 28 participants involved at the workshop, representing different sectors: industry, universities, NGO´s, national mining service representatives, research institutes, nature conservation authorities, ministries, spatial planning authorities, water management authorities, mining project designers, stakeholders from civil engineering sector and construction & demolition waste recycling experts, with a support from Montenegrin project partner and project consultants from Alianta. Workshop included oral presentations on the topics of aggregates supply, interactive workshop and round-table discussions, followed by small social event for stakeholders after the workshop closure to enable unofficial conversation and personal links connection between participants.

The interactive workshop results and a discussion suggested many possible ways on how to improve practices and legislations towards better aggregates supply planning in Slovenia, including a need for national spatial planning and mining strategies, improvement of recycling of construction waste legislation, a suggestion for a better involvement of different stakeholders in aggregates planning process, a need for better distribution of concession fees among local communities/state and an importance to use best available technologies for mining and processing.
