The fifth edition of the EWWR will take place from the 16th to the 24th November 2013
The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is a Europe-wide 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.
In Catalonia there are 167 participating entities, public administrations, associations, companies, schools, universities and other institutions, providing a total of 777 activities. Across Europe, there are 35 regions of 19 European countries that perform more than 12,500 awareness activities on waste prevention.
By carrying out awarenessraising actions on the “3Rs”, Reduce waste, Reuse products, Recycle materials, they are targeting various audiences, from European citizens to employees and customers, pupils, or the general public. These actions, ranging from a simple e-mail to comprehensive awareness-raising campaigns, will focus on the various stages of a product’s life cycle, from production, consumption and reuse to selective collection and recycling. They will be focused on one or several of the 4 following themes: Waste reduction, Product reuse, Material recycling, and Clean-Up.
