The annual week of compost awareness (ICAW) raising has been embraced by compost organisations across the world, including ECN. This year’s theme ‘Soil loves Compost’ is scheduled for the 3-9 May.
Despite the international emergency due to COVID-19, the main associations engaged in promoting the recovery of organic waste through composting are working synergistically to ensure that ICAW 2020 takes place regularly, even if in a different way than usual.
The ECN (European Compost Network) together with CIC (Italian Composting and Biogas Association), CRE (Composting & Anaerobic Digestion Association of Ireland), AORA (Australian Organics Recycling Association Ltd), Composting Council Research & Education Foundation, The Compost Council of Canada, Garden Organics and the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic, has joined the initiative and will promote ICAW through its Social Medias, websites and emails to their Members.
