The main goal of the project is to raise awareness and educate students about the climate changes we are witnessing, and thus encourage them to find solutions and to deal responsibly with the environment and waste. The purpose of the project is to present the issue of climate change to students through various activities during the school year. In the affiliated schools, various activities will be carried out to raise awareness about climate change and activities that will consequently reduce the consumption of resources and the amount of waste.
