April 19, 2019 - NGO Green Home is organizing an educational camp for the fifth time marking the day of the Drim Basin. This year's camp will be held in cooperation with NGO Green Step from Ulcinj and with the support of the GEF project "Strengthening Cross-Border Cooperation and Integral Water Resources Management in the Widened Drim River Basin."
The theme of this year's education camp is plastic pollution and environmental impacts. The Camp will be held from 5 to 6 May at Ada Bojana, Ulcinj.
The celebration of the Drim Basin Day aims to educate citizens about the harmful use of plastic
, but also the use of alternative products. In this regard, this action encompasses a set of educational activities such as an online campaign that involves the production of infographics on the subject of plastic pollution, the creation of short video material, holding placid beach bidders with the blue flag to encourage them to cease using single-use plastic products and the promotion of alternative products.
Intending to encourage citizens to reduce the use of plastic products and to promote alternative solutions from 18 to 23 April, is the action of PlasticFreeChallenge.
"We invite all interested citizens to join the competition by sending a photo of their example of action to reduce plastic waste generation," said Green Home's NGO.
Two of the most innovative responses to the competition will be awarded a two-day camp on Ada Bojana, while other participants will be awarded prizes of surprise.
During the training camp organized by NGO Green Home, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about plastic pollution, marine waste and the impact on the submarine world of life, the concept of the circular economy, as well as the techniques of resorting to nature. In addition to the lectures, there will be organized gatherings around the campfire with a presentation of films about the value of the Drim river basin, as well as cleaning the mapped location as the most problematic.
