The EWWR 2015 is starting soon!
In less than three weeks, the 2015 edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction will start. This edition will take place from the 21st to the 29th of November 2015 and focus on the issue of dematerialisation, under the slogan “DEMATERIALISATION: DOING MORE WITH LESS”. Until now, more than 4500 have been registered by public authorities, associations, NGOs, businesses, schools and citizens interested, like you, in sustainable resource and waste management for a greener and smarter way of life! Actions will take place during one single week in Europe and beyond!
The 2015 edition is even more special as the EWWR has been honoured with the patronage of the European Parliament and its president Martin Schulz.
Hurry Up! You can still register your action for the EWWR until the 12th of November 2015!
