3 Rs of the Environment

3 Rs of the Environment is a youth exchange that will take place in the Armenian city of Gyumri between 3 and 9 of November 2019.

Young people from Poland, Armenia, Latvia, and Georgia will participate in the exchange.

3 Rs stand for Reduce Reuse Recycle.

The aim of the exchange is to sensitize young people to environmental issues, namely recycling and waste management (reduction and reuse) in a long-term effect, using non-formal, informal and outdoor methods.

We want to raise the awareness of young people about the alternative use of waste in order to reduce its release into nature. Our aim is also to share and integrate the best practices and methods of local communities in the approaches to recycling opportunities and possibilities for young people.

We want to promote youth initiatives and entrepreneurship on topics related to community well-being by organizing exhibitions of art and objects made of recycled materials.

The follow-up activities will foster quality improvements in youth work and youth initiatives.  We want to encourage young people’s participation and promote social inclusion.

The preparatory visit of the project took place between 2 and 3 of October 2019 at KASA Gyumri Training Centre and Guesthouse and it gathered group leaders from Poland, Latvia, Georgia and Armenia.  The youth exchange 3 Rs of the Environment is funded by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.
