The continuous large amounts of waste produced are valuable resources. Waste avoidance is therefore of great importance. The first federal and state waste avoidance program responds to this. However, the approaches often lack practical relevance, which is why a stronger concretization and binding nature of waste avoidance is necessary.

This is being worked out in the project through analyses and workshops with stakeholders in four subject areas (textiles, disposables, event management and education/intercultural communication). Through innovative discussion and participation formats, concrete approaches and instruments are to be developed, which are jointly supported and implemented by the relevant stakeholders. Webinars will be used to integrate these into the design of the questions and thus also the workshops, in order to develop a stronger agreement of joint responsibility for the approaches discussed there.
