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.

Highlights

The EWWR Awards Ceremony, hosted by the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels on 15 May 2019, gathered over 150 waste reduction enthusiasts from across Europe. Of the 16 finalists, six received awards in different categories.

The EWWR is now preparing for the 2019 edition to take place between 16 and 24 November. Materials on this year’s theme, “Waste education and communication”, are available online. Under the slogan “Change your ways, reduce your waste” and the hashtags #EWWR2019 and #ReduceYourWaste, EWWR is challenging participants to educate themselves and others about their consumption and waste generation and to make changes to their lives to mitigate their environmental impact.
 
Furthermore, the EWWR is actively recruiting additional regional and national coordinators from all over Europe and beyond.
