On the 25th May 2021, was organized the first webinar within the project „ICT – SOS for the environment” on the online platform „ZOOM”.
During the event, the project partners presented vast information about their organizations and what kind of actions are taken at the national level for a better waste management.
In this regard, during the webinar participants presented and discussed topics regarding the waste management system, tendencies and potentials in Poland, Germany, Hungary and Moldova.
An interesting presentation was made by Joanna Priwieziencew from AgriNatura (project partner) regarding the global waste problem as seen from Kenya. During the presentation, Joanna informed us about Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi, with an estimated 2,400 tons of solid waste is generated every day, 20% of which is in plastic form. Poor waste management, coupled with rising urban pressure, have heightened the risks of environmental degradation in the city of 4.4 million people.
Waste is one of the most important and difficult environmental problems. Regardless of better or worse management systems – garbage has become a problem that we have to deal with every day.
Project entitled „ICT –a tool for environment” is a joint initiative of partnership established between NGOs from Poland – AgriNatura Foundation, Hungary – Védegylet Egyesület, Moldova – ProEntranse and Germany – LuXX.
The partners planned the duration of the project for 22 months from December 1, 2020 to October 31, 2022.
