Short description

Prevent further plastic pollution of beaches and sea, reduce youth unemployment in the Western Rural Area.

Description

We propose to make our ongoing clean-up activities on the beaches of the Western Rural Area sustainable by
– processing the collected plastic into sellable products (ropes, ponchos, bags, planks, poles),
– creating 20 additional jobs in a school related recycling enterprise,
– integrating plastic related topics into the curriculum of 10 schools, and
– use this educational material and our local example for national awareness raising.
