Take Part

The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is an initiative aiming to promote 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, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved.

The next edition of the event will be held under the patronage of the European parliament.

To highlight this topic and to encourage and support EWWR Action Developers to implement actions around this topic, a number of tools have been developed.
