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 10th EWWR edition  took place between 17 and 25 November 2018 and was a great success, with 1,4347 actions registered across 30 countries!

The thematic focus of the year was hazardous waste prevention. EWWR encouraged Action Developers to think about ways to detox and diminish the use of toxic products in their nearest surroundings such as bathrooms, kitchens, sheds and garage. For an overview of the actions implemented and countries that participated, have a look at the comprehensive Press File.

The next edition will take place from 16 to 24 November 2019.


Don’t hesitate and take part in the EWWR!
