THE
INTRODUCTION
PROJECT
Do we know that 1 ton of paper that is
recycled saves 17 trees; energy we save
when we recycle one glass bottle is enough
to light a light for 4
hours or that recycling conserves natural
resources like water, air, minerals?
Special focus should be put on single steps
that every person can undertake to reduce
their eco-footprint on the planet.
This will mean simple rules that
everyone can follow every day in order to
make sure that we improve environmental
status.
We have become a over-consumable society
and environment is suffering strong.
Each week we put bags out by the curb that
garbage truck comes and take away, and we
forget about them: out of sight=out of mind.
But where does it go? And what would
happen if nobody comes to take it away?
We’d be forced to think about it constantly.
And when we really look at what we throw
away, we can see that most of our garbage
isn’t really garbage at all, but rather reusable,
recyclable materials.
Every garbage bag contains valuable
resources and energy that we are throwing
away every day.
When you recycle products you use every
day, like cardboard boxes, milk jugs, cans, you
give new life to items that used to be thrown
away, saving energy and helping lower
greenhouse gas emissions in the process.
Youth should have the chance to learn this
facts in order to save the
future of the planet.
Therefore the project will provide
space for learning about these themes
recycling, environment protection and
waste selection and removal and the
benefits we gain from it. Also it will
allow discussion on what measures can
be undertaken around Europe by
environmental organizations to reduce
the waste production in areas affected
by migrants.
Through the project participants will
gain the motivation to become key
environmental agents in their own local
communities, become active since they
will learn how big the impact we leave
on Earth with our individual actions is,
and they will understand the motto of
“think globally - act locally”.
The project will give them
opportunity to practice and develop
social skills; boost their self-
confidence, self-esteem, and life
satisfaction; they will practice
teamwork, presentation, public
speaking, problem solving, creative
work which will provide them
natural sense of accomplishment.
We will inspire youngsters to get
involved and take active part in
society as active citizens, improve
the level of key competences and
skills of young people, promote
diverse cultures and traditions and
social inclusion, tolerance and
respect and present European
cooperation in youth field.
The objectives of the project are:
to raise awareness of 35 youngsters
about the benefits of recycling, reusing
of waste and separate waste selection;
to broaden participants knowledge and
to introduce the topic of environment
protection and sustainable
development;
To tackle participants creativity and to
engage them in creating
environemental workshops and games
for kids (age 6- 12) related to 7R
concept;
To implement at least 4 local
workshops with local
kids/students;
To create reusable bags from
old t-shirts and donate them to
the local community shops;
To provide space for promotion
of Cultural diversity in Europe
and intercultural understanding
between youngsters coming
from different social,
cultural, religious background;
To discuss how 7R can be
achieved in migrants crises and
what can be further done by
youth in areas affected by

ERASMUS+ PROGRAMME
For 30 years, the EU has funded the Erasmus
programme, which has enabled over three
million European students to spend part of
their studies at another higher education
institution or with an organization in Europe.
Today, Erasmus+ is an EU programme for
education, training, youth and sport that brings
such opportunities
to all - students, staff, trainees, teachers,
volunteers and more. It's not just about Europe
or Europeans either - with Erasmus+, people
from all over the world can access
