Act Today for a Better Tomorrow
About the Project
Act Today for a Better Tomorrow project aims to offer to both citizens and NGOs in the community from the Southern region of Romania, the opportunity to create partnerships with local authorities and private companies in order to cooperate in the area of selective waste collection. The project is part of the Today for Tomorrow platform, which also includes Today for Tomorrow on the Beach and Today for Tomorrow in School projects.
The project will be implemented in 22 communities from 7 counties in the South part of Romania: Arges, Prahova, Dambovita, Dolj, Teleorman, Giurgiu, Ialomita, Calarasi and Bucharest, during 16 months.
What we intend to achieve?
To reach at least 25,000 people from the 7 counties located in the South part of Romania and Bucharest, who will understand the importance of selective waste collection;
To organize 24 meetings and debates with relevant actors (local authorities, relevant organizations), in order to improve the collaboration and intervention in the field of selective waste collection;
To support 50 citizens or organizations so that they can develop ideas / projects in the field of selective waste collection.
To develop a personalized set of tools meant to support both individuals and local communities in their endeavor to understand and put into practice the principles of selective waste collection and recycling.
What are the outcomes?
A specific guide designated for citizens, which will include national legal framework in the field of selective collection as well as examples of good practices in this field;
Developing an online platform dedicated to the project;
Organizing debates with relevant local actors, in order to develop an effective intervention guide. This activity will generate solutions for a better selective waste collection, proposed by the relevant actors from relevant fields of activity on the local economy: decision makers, NGOs, companies active in the field of waste recycling;
