The 2017 European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) runs from 18–26 November 2017. Supported by the European Commission, the EWWR seeks to promote awareness-raising activities about sustainable resource and waste management. This year’s edition is focused on reusing and repairing. Behind this topic is the need to shift from a throw-away attitude towards more appreciation for products and the resources used to make them.
The EWWR hopes to show people how easy it is to find value in something they thought had become useless. Organisers are encouraging a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved. The 2016 edition of the event is reviewed in this video. Interested parties can register their event online.
