The EWWR 2021 to kick off with over 12,400 actions registered!

The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is back for another intensive week of awareness-raising events from 20 to 28 November 2021. For its 13th edition, over 12,400 actions related to waste reduction, products reuse, materials recycling, as well as clean-ups will be carried out across 30 countries in Europe and beyond.

Each year, the EWWR selects a specific aspect of waste reduction on which to focus. For the 13th edition, the campaign decided to concentrate on circular communities, highlighting the key role played by local communities in the transition towards sustainable consumption and production patterns. The key word is collaboration among individuals or groups of people to imagine and build together communities based on the circular economy approach all around Europe and beyond! These uncertain times showed us the importance of human contact but, most of all, the power that people have in changing daily habits.
