The Green

Thematic objective: B.4 Environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation
Priority: Priority B.4.3 Support cost-effective and innovative energy rehabilitations relevant to building types and climatic zones, with a focus on public buildings
Brief description of the project: "The Green" is a project that falls within the framework of the priority regional theme of environmental protection. Our choice of this priority is based on the importance of the theme of protection of the environment. We have opted for recycling as a battleground for our project. Indeed, the concept of recycling is not sufficiently developed in Tunisia, whether in terms of the awareness of young Tunisians or the behavioral level of Tunisians. Some attempts to initiate the recycling process among the Tunisian population have failed to make this gesture a habit and a behavior. This failure is due to a limited awareness campaign, lack of information and explanations, but above all to the lack of follow-up. We hope by this project to introduce young Tunisians and local organizations to the importance of recycling, hoping for a multiplier effect that will affect the local population and Tunisian households.
Main objectives – issues to be addressed: Launch a permanent youth recycling club - set up a collection point for recyclable waste (plastic, glass, used batteries, etc.) in the youth center and various regional organizations and institutions - develop a pedagogical support explaining the various recycling processes - create awareness-raising support for recycling (posters, flyers, stickers ...).
Expected results: Raise awareness among local young people about waste reduction as a means of environmental protection Initiate the recycling of waste among young Tunisians Generalize the recycling technique to regional organizations and institutions
Partners already involved: There is no partner now, because the project was just an idea and now we will start to implement and achieve
Partners searched: We are looking for partners who provide logistical support for the launch of clubs or recyclable (plastic, glass, used batteries, etc.)
