The transition towards sustainable packaging solutions is more critical than ever. With this in mind, the Euro-Med Weeks for Waste Reduction (EMWWR) returns in 2023 for its second edition, laser-focused on the theme of “Packaging.”


EMWWR is a powerful campaign on waste prevention in the Mediterranean region, conceived with inspiration from the successful European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR). Led by ACR+ and MedWaves, and fully supported by the EU through the SwitchMed Programme, EMWWR is dedicated to raising awareness and mobilizing action for a more sustainable future in the Mediterranean region.


The 2023 edition is poised to be a game-changer, addressing the urgent issue of packaging waste and its associated challenges. By focusing on packaging, EMWWR aims to empower individuals, businesses, and communities to come together and drive the shift towards a circular economy.


The heart of EMWWR lies in its Call for Actions, which is now open for innovative proposals. Action Developers are invited to submit their ideas, with a particular emphasis on engaging youth (aged 18 to 35) and women in the prevention and treatment of packaging waste in the Southern Mediterranean area.


This year, the Thematic Focus of the 2023 edition aligns perfectly with EWWR’s thematic focus – Packaging. We believe it’s time to take proactive measures to reduce the environmental impact of packaging, and this begins with your innovative ideas.
