Reducing Waste Now! (Berlin)
Description: Since it’s becoming more and more difficult to estimate the amount of waste generated and its whereabouts - the waste reduction plays an important role in building a more sustainable future. Therefore this kind of topic will be the main theme of this study camp. The aim is to change people’s behaviors by offering fun, creative and sustainable solutions for short-life and disposable everyday items and overproduction. The participants will be encouraged and guided by the facilitators to develop their own actions, which they will implement in their local communities, acting as multipliers and raising awareness and enhancing skills of local population. The idea of the study camp could be summarized with the popular quote “think globally, act locally”.
