How to participate: as an Organiser
Who were the Organisers in 2012?
The Organisers of the European Week for Waste Reduction Edition 2012 are the official Project Partners of the EU LIFE+ Project, as well as a number of public authorities that decide to join the third edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction following the call for Interest launched by the Partners in February 2012.
For those countries, regions or areas that will not be covered by a national, regional or local Organiser, the EWWR Secretariat will act as Organiser
Become an Organiser!
To take on the role of EWWR Organiser, you must be a European public authority with recognised competence in the field of waste prevention.
EWWR Organisers must officially adhere to the objectives of the European Week for Waste Reduction and to various commitments within the framework of the project by signing the Organisers’ Commitment Charter.
Role of EWWR Organisers
EWWR Organisers are public authorities competent in the field of waste prevention. They act as coordinators of the Week at the level of competence they represent in their country.
As such, they participate in promoting the event, ensuring the registration and validation of awareness-raising actions proposed, and in coordinating these actions, which are carried out by a wide variety of actors; including public authorities or administrations, associations or NGOs, businesses, industries, educational establishments or others.
Public authorities may also choose to delegate these tasks to an associate organisation officially appointed by them.
Organisers’ Commitment Charter
To participate in the European Week for Waste Reduction as an Organiser, a public authority must commit to a number of principles. These are laid out in the EWWR Organisers’ Commitment Charter.
