Youth eco leaders (Mladi eko lideri)
Ekoložko Udruženje "Jezero", Bosnia and Herzegovina
We want to solve the problem of waste in our local community in a quality way. We are a small local NGO. We follow the rule "Act locally and think globally" In the earlier period, we cleaned our rivers, removed several illegal dumps and found a company that regularly collects waste (weekly). This spring, we organized trainings, such as a practical training in mushroom production and the production of compost in our local communities. We used organic waste (grass, sawdust, leaves, straw) for the production of mushrooms and compost. This way, we achieved positive changes in our local community. After the completion of our project, the amount of solid waste was reduced. In addition, significant production of mushrooms and compost (organic fertilizer) was achieved.
