EWWR logo EN D BD 200pxThe European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is the biggest Europe-wide initiative promoting the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week. It encourages a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, schools, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved.

Since 1 July 2017 the EWWR is coordinated by the EWWR Steering Committee. The project was originally launched in 2009 under the European Commission’s LIFE+ programme, which co-financed the project until mid-2017.


The most outstanding actions of the EWWR 2017 edition were awarded at the EWWR Awards Ceremony  on 22 May 2018 at the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels.  The Jury awarded one winner for each of the five categories of Action Developers, as well as a European Special Prize for the action showing the best European spirit. Find out more on our finalists and winners in the press file!

The EWWR is now getting ready for its 10th edition which will take place from 17 to 25 November 2018. Hazardous waste prevention will be the thematic focus this year, with a new poster and some factsheets coming soon. Registrations will open in September.


Don’t hesitate and take part in the EWWR!
