This program addresses the problem of environment pollution caused by low awareness of local people about possibilities of waste treatment. The main aim of the project is to create a network of active school groups at primary and secondary schools of Slovakia, which would dedicate themselves to educational and monitoring activities within their local community. They will engage in advertising of waste separation and energy saving measures, monitor illegal human activities and negative human impact on the environment in their surroundings. The program is expected to increase the sensibility of people to environmental protection and contribute to improvement of the state of natural environment in local communities.
