Join us for this year’s European Week for Waste Reduction which will take place from 18th to 26th November 2023. This initiative brings together schools, public administrations, companies, NGOs, and passionate citizens from all across Europe who are united by the same goal: promoting awareness-raising activities on sustainable resources and waste management. 

The theme for this year is Packaging! 

As you plan your action, you can still choose to focus on another topic as long as your action aligns with the principles of reducing, reusing, or recycling. However, if you decide to go with this year’s theme, you will have the opportunity to participate in the Innovative Award Category.

Show us your original ideas with broad educational outreach and a lasting impact. Discover inspiration and ideas in this idea hub.

About the Awards

Every year, WasteServ awards the best actions of the European Week for Waste Reduction during the Malta Waste Reduction Awards!    

Through actions and projects aimed at reducing, reusing, and recycling waste, participants get to showcase their initiatives to raise awareness. Last year, we received actions from 63 participants. 

Finalists are selected by a panel of independent experts, and the winners are announced during the Malta Waste Reduction Awards. Each winning action will receive funding to help participants in their efforts at reducing waste. The winners also get to represent Malta in the European Waste Reduction Awards, which bring together the best participants in the field from all over Europe. 

Winners will receive a prize valued at €1,000.  

In the case of the Waste Reduction Award for best practices in Educational Establishments, the top three actions will be rewarded. This initiative aims to foster sustainable habits and values among students, urging them to become agents of positive change and laying a strong foundation for lifelong environmental stewardship. The winners in this category will be granted prizes ranging from €1,000 to €3,000.  

Don’t forget to review the 2023 Rules of Participation before registering.
