Got a bright idea about how to reduce waste? Register your EWWR action now!
Registration is now open for actions as part of this year’s European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) – the largest awareness-raising campaign on waste reduction in Europe.
Waste is a critical problem across the world today. In Europe, the average citizen generates around 482 kg of waste – and less than half of that is reused, composted or recycled. We know we can do better than this, which is why we’re looking for innovative ideas for actions focusing on the “3Rs”: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Actions of all kinds are welcome, conferences, contests, exhibitions or information campaigns, as long as it aims to raise awareness of waste reduction and make a real difference.
This year we’re setting our sights on Hazardous Waste – the toxic and harmful substances hiding in our cleaning products, pesticides, and electronics that threaten both our health and the environment. It’s “Time to Detox” by cutting down our use of these products, or kicking them out entirely! Find out more about hazardous waste and how to avoid it here. Of course, you are always free to pick another waste prevention topic.
Do you have some fresh ideas on what could make a positive change? If you are a public authority, association, NGO, business, educational establishment or an individual, you can register an action until the 9th of November. Simply follow this link www.ewwr.eu/register, complete your registration, get access to all the EWWR Communication tools, and start planning your action. You can also check our website to see all the actions taking place and participate in one happening near you.
The EWWR will take place between the 17th and 25th of November 2018. For further information visit the EWWR website. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the EWWR Secretariat.
We’re looking forward to seeing your ideas turn into initiatives in November!
