European Week for Waste Reduction Awards

Event organised by the European Committee of the Regions, Brussels

The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) annual awards ceremony will reward the most outstanding actions on waste prevention carried out during the Week, which took place in November 2018. Coordinators, action developers and anyone interested in the EWWR are invited to celebrate the initiative and discover best practices on waste reduction from across Europe. The finalists and winners were selected from over 14,000 inspiring actions organised during the last edition, by a jury of European professionals working in the environmental sector. The EWWR Awards are a fantastic opportunity to put the spotlight on some innovative, effective and long-lasting actions to prevent waste, and to recognise the hard work of those who make them a reality.
