What happens to the package after you send it in the waste bin ? What garbage can be recycled and which is doomed to rot at the landfill? How to help Belarus to solve garbage problem? These issues will be addressed during a training for YCO YLP exchange programs graduates and for high school students, conducted with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Belarus.
The training will give participants new environmental knowledge and introduce ways to influence the situation. The event is held in partnership with the Association "Ekopartnerstvo".
Participants of the training will also learn how to work with different target groups, methods, and techniques of effective communication. The event will be devoted in several parts to work in groups, where high school students will make their action plan on wastes management, and coaches will help them prepare for presentations in schools.
