#EWWRAwards finalists || Public Administration • North London Waste Authority
The EWWR Awards finalists have been announced! In each category the Jury has selected their top 3 finalists. The winners will be revealed on 22 May in Brussels during the EWWR Awards Ceremony. To find out more about the finalists, their initiative and commitment for waste reduction, we have caught up with them for a short interview.
1 • What is the “London Upcycling Show” about?
The London Upcycling Show is an event that aims to give people the opportunity to learn, celebrate and experience the best of upcycling and giving furniture a second life, to showcase and encourage upcycling, repair and reuse of unwanted household items, to help to preserve valuable resources and to divert reusable items from disposal.
2 • How did you come across this idea?
The concept and idea behind the London Upcycling Show was created and developed by NLWA officers. An upcycling competition and a free of charge exhibition is the first of this kind to take place in the UK. Following a pilot version, officers enhanced and scaled up the concept, put learnings into practice and in consultation with project partners, participants and attendees developed a new improved version for NLWA’s participation in the European Week for Waste Reduction in 2017.
3 • Why is waste reduction important for you/your organisation?
Waste prevention is a priority for European, national and regional government. It is at the top of the waste hierarchy, as the preferred activity to deliver sustainable outcomes.
