Title: Green Winds for Jamaica
Separating that which does not belong together. In Jamaica's popular tourist location Negril waste separation is now happening in a systematic manner with the help from children and youth.
An effective waste collection system, a recycling center, environmental education programs for children and young people are being offered, a reliable master plan for waste collection in cooperation with schools and cleaning large public areas are all part of this very ambitious project.
These measures will help strengthen environmental awareness, at the same time serving as a good example for additional environment projects on a large-scale community level.
