Cyprus to take part in European Week for Waste Reduction

Cyprus is taking part in the European Week for Waste Reduction -EWWR 2018 – between 17-25 November as part of efforts to promote the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week, the Environment Service said.

It urges a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved.

The actions implemented in the EWWR are addressing the “3Rs”: Reduce waste, Reuse products, Recycle material. The “3Rs” represent the options which should be considered first when elaborating a waste management strategy.

EWWR’s objectives are to raise awareness about waste reduction, product reuse and material recycling strategies, and related European Union and Member States policies, to highlight the work accomplished by EWWR participants, to mobilise and encourage European citizens to concentrate on four key action themes and to reinforce EWWR stakeholders’ capacities by providing them with targeted communication tools and training.

For this purpose, a website was created in order to manage these actions and to promote available educational tools for schools, businesses, organizsed groups and citizens. The deadline for submitting proposals on the website is November 9.
All stakeholders are eligible to participate.

For more information and submission of proposals please visit www.ewwr.eu. Further clarifications and details can be obtained via telephone 22866231, Environmental Officer Athena Papanastasiou, email: [email protected]
