Protecting the environment: Forest restoration through reusing and recycling.
This IPP is focused on developing and advocating the importance of environmental protection, and in particular, the importance of preserving the woods in rural areas. Participants will learn about the significance of preserving nature within the context of the local culture, and create a day of learning for the local youth. Through this project, participants will learn about the existing environmental issues, especially with regards to waste management in forests. Participants will have the opportunity to clean up the woods, and identify ways to creatively recycle or reuse any found waste to the benefit of the local school and/or kindergarten.
Participants should ideally:
- Have an interest and/or experience in nature conservation, waste management, environmental protection, carpentry or designing.
- Be willing to take an active role in cleaning the woods.
- Be ready to interact with different agents from the local community.
