The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is an initiative promoting 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.
Multi-language website: http://www.ewwr.eu
A extensive guide for good practices is here:
Here is a selection of factsheets and good practices (in pdf format) that could be used by educators in training activities developed by the EWWR:
- Guide to Hazardous waste
- Repair Café
- Give box
- Reusable cups system
- Ecodesign workshop
- Shared economy: Setting up a sharing network
- Paper waste reduction
- Composting training
The factsheets were developed to support the organisation of activities for this specific project, that’s why they sometimes include a call to action to join the EWWR. However, we think these practices have high potential for being replicated in different contexts.
