European Week for Waste Reduction

The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is an initiative aiming to promote the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week.

It encourages a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved.

What are the EWWR’s objectives?

  • to raise awareness about waste reduction, product reuse and material recycling strategies, and related European Union and Member States policies,
  • to highlight the work accomplished by EWWR participants,
  • to mobilise and encourage European citizens to concentrate on four key action themes,
  • to reinforce EWWR stakeholders’ capacities by providing them with targeted communication tools and training,
  • to assess the impact of communication actions on concrete behaviour change regarding consumption and waste management patterns.
