From November 16th to 24th, the European Week of Waste Reduction will take place with the Principality’s association, an environmental preservation initiative to which the Rock is always committed. The theme of this edition is Education and Communication in Waste Reduction.

The new edition of this vast event will be held across Europe. It aims to educate everyone on the sustainable management of resources and waste. The European Week for Waste Reduction is gaining increasing state engagement, particularly by the Principality of Monaco, which has pledged, through the Directorate of the Environment, to present the public with different awareness-raising actions. There is still a lot to be done in the field of waste reduction and a lot to learn. Everyone is invited to participate, across both public and private sectors, as the weeklong display will show different solutions for the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) to help integrate them into daily life.

Many activities by and for all

Whether you are a company, an administration, an association or an individual, it is still possible to register for these various actions through the official Facebook page.
