EWWR Awards

The annual EWWR Awards ceremony is an event created to reward the most outstanding actions carried out in each EWWR edition. Each year, Coordinators, Action Developers and anyone interested in the EWWR gather during one evening to celebrate the EWWR and its participants. A Jury of European professionals working in the environmental sector selects finalists and winners amongst all the many inspiring EWWR actions! The Awards are an amazing opportunity to put the spotlight on some of the EWWR most committed Action Developer.
