The environmental experts in the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) Awards jury convened online on 2 April to select the finalists of the 2019 edition of the campaign. They shortlisted 16 creative and impactful actions out of a total of 80 nominations. The winners will be announced later this year.

The World Water Day has been celebrated every year the 22nd of March since 1993. This year the theme is ‘Water and Climate Change’, and the purpose is to show the close and interdependent link between water and climate change.

In 2019, the European Week for Waste Reduction called for action under the slogan: “Change your ways, reduce your waste.” Owing to the support of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology, the Association of Environmental Enterprises, as the Hungarian coordinator of the event, nominated one action in each category for the international Awards. The Hungarian Awards Ceremony, where the winners will receive their prizes and certificates, will be held in the near future.

In February 2020 two members of the Tisza Plastic Cup Movement – waste management professional Gergely Hankó and nature documentary film maker Attila Dávid Molnár – went to Uzhhorod, Ukraine.

At the handover ceremony, Nikolay Kosov, Chairman of the Board of the IIB, highlighted the importance of environment protection and renewable energy.

The Plastic Cup has cleaned the Tisza and its floodplains from 70 tonnes of waste since its launch seven years ago. The regions of the Upper Tisza and the Lake Tisza can already sigh with relief, but there are still many areas waiting for intervention.

This year the European Weak for Waste Reduction started off with 16,570 actions, to which Hungary added 411 new ideas, making the country the 4th most prolific nation among the 30 participants regarding the number of initiatives.

The  European Week for Waste Reduction(EWWR) is back for another intensive week of awareness-raising events from 16 to 24 November 2019. For its 11th edition, over 16,500 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.

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic situation and the border restrictions the Presidency Board of the Organising Team decided to postpone ÖKOINDUSTRIA2020. The new date is 28-30 April, 2021.

The host country for the workshop, Poland, has recently introduced risk-based policy and legislation.
