European Week for the Reduction of Waste (EWWR) was born in 2009 as a EU-funded LIFE+ project. The initiative came from public authorities across Europe willing to join forces in the prevention of waste.

Thematic focus: each year, the EWWR focuses on a different aspect of waste prevention in order to draw attention to areas of high impact related to our habits of unsustainable consumption as a society, this year: Invisible waste.

The actions carried out in the framework of the EWWR addresses the 3Rs: Waste Reduction, Product Reuse, Recycling materials, in this order. These are the main R’s (although there are many others) to have in order to re-evaluate the habits of consumption.

County council, town halls, regional governments, NGOs, a company, academia and universities and you are interested in carrying out an awareness-raising action on the reduction, reuse, recycling or cleaning of waste during the following EWWR participates as an ACTION DEVELOPER.
