Reduce. Reuse. Recycle’ workshop united 22 young people from all around Kosovo to learn about practical ways to live an environmentally-sound, sustainable and minimalistic, almost zero waste, life.

For 3 days, together with lecturer/facilitator Anna Chashchyna, students learned about and applied some of 3R practices, analyzed best worldwide practices, crafted projects with reused trash collected around the city and pitched their eco-projects created on spot during the event.

Students had a chance to rethink their daily routine practices, reshape their attitudes. Everybody left with broader knowledge & more inspiration, new friendships & fresh ideas, and most importantly with commitment & courage to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible - for a greener Kosovo and safer planet.

After all, we are all in the same boat here, right?
