Reduce, reuse, recycle in Kosovo

Kosovo is a small country in the Balkan region, standing on the edge of Southeastern Europe. Known for its hospitality, it also features one of the youngest populations in Europe. Of its less than two million citizens, more than 50% are under the age of 25. It is also a new country, having only gained independence fifteen years ago. A new country with no sustainable recycling process at all.

The goal of this project is to develop, with the collaboration of various experts, a portfolio/guidebook; to provide an educational outline for creative hands-on activities in order to raise students’ awareness and expand their knowledge of the recycling process. This guidebook will be distributed as part of the "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle" workshop, a training conference for 70 public high school teachers in Kosovo's capital city, Prishtine. The workshop will provide demonstrations of how recycling and environmental curriculum can be incorporated into a variety of subjects. The emphasis will be on improving Kosovo's environment through educating the youngest generations. Teaching these young leaders to advocate for these changes now and empowering them to make improvements in their families and communities.
