We are looking for volunteers to help us to analyze different legislation Cyprus.
Context of the mission:
Since 2015 and the Directive 2015/720 on reducing the use of plastic bags, the EU member countries have to take measures to reduce their consumption of plastic bags. They are free to choose among several tools: voluntary agreement between industry and the government, tax, prohibition. The work of Surfrider Foundation Europe is to ensure that Member States implement the European directive.
The volunteer will be responsible for seeking different information in the legislation:
- What measures has the state implemented: a tax, a ban, a voluntary agreement?
- If it is a tax: what is the tax amount?
- Does the legislation allow exemptions from the measure put in place by the state (biodegradable plastic bag, or compostable, or oxo-degradable, plastic bag with a thickness of 15 microns or less …)
- If yes, which ones ? For how long ?
Required profile :
We are looking for someone who speaks Greek and English or French.
Skills in law and legal research are a plus but not mandatory.
Deadline for this mission : November 15th, 2019.
