European Week of Waste Reduction


European Week of Waste Reduction (EWWR) is happening next month. Check the EWWR website at

The theme this year is ‘Invisible Waste’ and you can find out more about this here. Specific resources for schools are available via Google Drive.

We would like to encourage all schools in NI to become action developers and to register actions on the EWWR website, to showcase any project or event they have undertaken to reduce waste.

Because every action counts! Organise and carry out actions on waste prevention, reuse, or recycling, with the aim of informing as many people as possible.
EWWR actions take very different forms. Conferences, contests, information booths and exhibitions are just some examples. Looking for inspiration? Visit the Ideas’ Hub.

Find all the information you need to participate and register your actions here. You might even win an award for it!
