Project WNEP#01.04
Working title: “Raising awareness of children and their parents on issues of nature and environmental protection”
Under the project title “My Environment and Me” (working title), schoolchildren should be invited to participate in a national competition, the content of which is to send in photos/drawings (by email or by uploading to a website, to be decided) show what you can do or already do to improve the current natural and environmental situation (especially with a view to the current plastic waste situation).
As part of this competition, it should also be proposed to send in photos/drawings of ideas and signs/plaques that point to the current problem with plastic waste – and show the possible solutions.
The best entries will be awarded. Bonuses, for example: bicycles (first prices), school supplies (further prices).
Such an action inevitably results in:
