The clean-Up activity of Umbrella Youth Center in Algeti
Summer is here and in the meantime, the pandemic situation is getting better and allowing us to come back into our actions – aiming to improve the environment that surrounds us. The team of the Umbrella Organisation (YEE Member, Georgia) jointly with the community members and volunteers, on 11 of June has organized a Clean-Up activity at Algeti Youth Center.
Besides, the Clean-up team of Umbrella didn’t only collect the trash but also separate the waste according to the waste sorting system – plastic and aluminum, in order to educate their volunteers and the community members on the importance of recycling system.
Meanwhile, the Umbrella Clean-Up activity that was organized within the frame of the World Environment Day (even though a bit late) was the first time that such activity was carried out in the village.
The Umbrella team remains committed to organize and undertake further events, activities, and actions to raise awareness on the environmental issues and establish the tradition of cleaning-up and waste sorting system in Georgia.
