This project consists of several activities, namely

  • Activity 2: Planting fruit trees in the school. In these activities, the young people trained will have the opportunity to plant at least thirty (30) trees in their establishments.
  • Activity 3: Creation of a structure called “green club”, in charge of raising awareness of other students and the continuity of activities related to sustainable development and climate change;
  • Activity 4: Production and provision of rubbish bins within the school. The young people in the school will participate in the manufacture of the bins made from recycled materials.
  • Activity 5: Organisation of a competition of recycled objects by the student.
Objective
