Waste Management and Environmental Protection, IPA Cross Border Cooperation Albania-Kosovo
The specific objective of the project is to increase the knowledge and engagement of 5000 students, 300 teachers and 1000 citizens in the region on the benefits of sustainable waste management and recycling for environmental protection and economic development. The lack of awareness, education and activity amongst citizens on environmental issues has been detrimental to their behavioral norms and thus, social and environmental condition. Through this intervention, the environmental and social challenges become economic opportunities. By increasing the level of knowledge, engagement and collaboration of citizens and institutions on sustainable waste management and recycling, Kosovar and Albanian society is better able to move forward in the process of integrating into the European Union.
