The HISCAP network assembles historical cities from Europe, whose aged infrastructure make them especially vulnerable to the problems caused by plastic pollution.
The network “Historic Cities Against Plastic Waste” (HISCAP) aims to facilitate the uptake of results those public administrations have implemented together with industry, civil society, waste management bodies and other supporting organizations to exchange and spread the knowledge, expertise and experience, and best practices between city representatives and the project partners.

The HISCAP Network has active collaboration with existing networks such as ACR+, Plastic Free July, and Association des villes pour la propreté urbaine (AVPU) to increase awareness about plastic pollution in historic cities and increase the visibility of HISCAP.
