Municipal solid waste management is a basic service that, in Finland, consists of collection, transportation and treatment systems provided by municipalities, waste management companies and producer responsibility organizations. The amount of municipal solid waste in Finland has risen quite steadily for many decades. In 2012, the recovery rate of municipal solid waste as material or energy was 67%. The Finnish Waste Act has been updated in 2012, with the key goal to further reduce waste amounts and progress recycling. The paper describes the best practices in strategic waste management planning and describes the organization of municipal solid waste in city of Oulu, Finland.

The rapidly changing organizational and business environment provides new challenges for higher education: both for teaching staff and students. The acquisition of professional skills alone is no longer enough for a successful career: Increasingly, there is a demand for continuous self-development.
This demand is represented at each end of the market: students who may wish to develop their personal skills and confidence, and companies which accordingly, may operate more efficiently with better prepared graduates. Introducing different alternatives for the acquisition of self-awareness and competencies into the higher education training palette can provide the basis for continuous self-development. The Life Long Learning objective is that students at all levels of education may acquire the self-awareness and competencies necessary for success in their chosen profession. The Faculty of Engineering group would support the implementation. The study's objectives are to identify the goals and present the results edited by the Competence Development Training Program research group formed at the University of Debrecen, Faculty of Engineering.
