Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot

Today’s youth do not have enough knowledge about waste and waste management which are very important for the future of the world and they are unconscious about it. It is important to raise awareness of young people on the recovery of waste and increase their motivation to work on the solution of this problem. First of all, young people who are informed about the negative consequences of environmental pollution should acquire the correct waste classification skills and increase their contribution to recycling. We, as a group, decided to prepare this project in order to increase the sensitivity of the project participants and gain awareness in the local people and act more consciously. With these ideas and data, we adopted the ideal of leaving a more livable world to the future by writing this project in order to reduce environmental pollution and support quality life. We must leave this world, which is universally our common heritage in terms of international law, to the future as more livable. In this context, the overall objective of our project is to increase the awareness of young people towards recycling and to promote zero waste awareness.

Objectives of the project:


  • To inform young people about waste management
  •  To increase the motivation and competence of young people on waste recycling
  •  To give the ability of correct waste classification to young people
  •  To inform about the scope and results of environmental pollution.
  •  To raise awareness on the recycling of products in the local area.
