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 held another intensive week of awareness-raising events from 21 to 29 November 2020. For its 12th edition, over 10,600 actions related to waste reduction, products reuse, materials recycling, as well as clean-ups were carried out across 33 countries in Europe and beyond. This year’s theme, invisible waste, highlights the need to prevent waste all along the life cycle of a product, challenging participants to make invisible waste visible and get to know the “real weight” they carry home after a purchase. For more information about this years’ edition, have a look at the press file.
