The European Week for Waste Reduction rewards the best actions implemented in 2015

The seventh edition of the EWWR was held from 21 to 29 November 2015 and more than 12,000 actions were implemented in Europe and beyond. In May, the time came to reward those who stood out in the name of waste prevention and reduction! It was a tough task but very satisfying at the same time as it brought to light the great efforts made by everybody involved across the 33 countries.

This year’s EWWR Awards Ceremony was held in Brussels on 11 May 2016. Our honourable Jury handed out the awards to the six most outstanding awareness-raising actions implemented during the EWWR 2015. They were selected amongst the 18 finalists from the six categories of Action Developers: Administration/Public Authority, Association/NGO, Business/Industry, Educational Establishment, Citizens, and Others.

The winners are:

1) Administration/Public Authority: A Tiana reduïm els residus (In Tiana we reduce waste) – Ajuntament de Tiana (Catalonia, Spain)

2) Association/NGO: LuogoComune (SharingPlaces) Il Formicaio Aps (Lecce, Puglia, Italy)

3) Business/Industry: Mes déchets valent de l’Or (My waste is worth gold) – Village Partenaire scrl (Brussels, Brussels Capital Region, Belgium)

4) Educational Establishment: Ne dobd ki, használd újra! (Do not throw away your future!) - Pumuckl German Nationality Kindergarten (Érd, Pest County, Hungary)

5) Citizen(s) : Differenziamoci 2015 (Diversifying 2015) - Nerina Palazzolo (Paternò, Sicily, Italy)

6) Others: Waste Away – Waste reduction week in Wedding – Baumhaus Projekt, Himmelbeet and WeddingWandler (Berlin,Germany)

The ceremony took place in the evening of the international conference “Circular Economy in practice: Rethinking our production and consumption models”, organised by Brussels Environment, in collaboration with ACR+. Both these events were the perfect occasion to learn and discover concrete examples of circular economy actions.
