Get set for International E-Waste Day – 14 October 2020

July 28, 2020
Press Release: WEEE Forum

The WEEE Forum has announced that the registration for the 2020 International E-Waste Day is now open

The initiative has been established to raise awareness about the growing issue of e-waste (you can read more about it here. The date for this year’s edition (and the following ones) has been set as the 14 October 2020.

The focus of this the IEWD 2020 will be on education. On the one hand communicating with children themselves (and through them accessing their teachers, parents and other family members) and on the other hand focusing on the negative impact that improper handling of e-waste has on children in some parts of the world. The idea behind the IEWD is to raise awareness, therefore the activities can be very diverse (social media campaigns, videos, infographics, events, conferences, e-waste collections, etc) and these don’t necessarily have to focus on the educational angle, but can be linked to other aspects of the e-waste issue that are most relevant to your business.

In 2019, more than 100 organizations from 50 countries participated in IEWD and the emphasis will continue to be on leaving some freedom and flexibility for participants to choose the activities they find most suitable for their audiences. So, while materials will be developed focused on education, WEEE Forum will leave it to participants to decide how they can use the day to best promote proper e-waste management.

If you would like to join the WEEE Forum for the 2020 edition, please save the date of the 14 October in your agenda. The organization kindly invites you to think of the possible ideas for your involvement, keeping in mind also the particular health context this year. Once your plans are set, you can register here 

E-Waste World Conference & Expo 2020 takes place from Wednesday 18 November to Thursday 19 November at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt Messe, Germany.
