Academy - Zero Waste Cities


The Zero Waste Europe Academy provides you with opportunities to gain direct experience and knowledge, in order to assist the implementation of zero waste plans and policies within your city.

The Academy is where you’ll find leading tools and resources to help guide you towards future successful implementation of zero waste strategies, created and led by the experts who have been behind Europe’s transition towards zero waste so far.

Using the experiences and insights we have gained from being at the forefront of the zero waste movement in Europe for the past decade, the Zero Waste Europe Academy has been designed to support the work of anyone who is serious about reducing and preventing waste in their local community.
