With the Project:
National Center of Environmental Organization “ Eco-Real”

The National Centre for Ecological Forecasting and Eco-Real is committed to the engagement of the younger generation in solving environmental problems caused by pollution. The project involves the management of household, agricultural and other wastes that are secondary resources and can be reused. The main goal of the project was engaging the younger generation to develop a new environmental thinking and waste management practices for enterprises.

INITIAL SITUATION

Improper disposal of domestic and household waste has had detrimental effects on the environment in Azerbaijan as the land was heavily polluted. Many youths were not aware of the positive impact of turning the waste into useful resources or giving it another life. The project began identifying the youths and engaging them in proper waste management activities that would generate revenue and save the environment.

SOLUTION

A new ecological thinking in the field of protecting the natural environment has been developed among young people, farmers, businessmen and private owners. This is done by turning the secondary waste materials into reusable materials for enterprises. The project will also facilitate educational training seminars in the field of the 'turn waste into real income' initiative.

INNOVATION

Various technologies of waste management and the turning of organic waste into compost have been demonstrated. This initiative enabled the youths to find useful ways of turning domestic waste into reusable or recyclable products. Furthermore, the youths were able to generate a reasonable amount of revenue as this also led to the creation of employment. The initiative made it possible for young people, using the generated varieties of agricultural, household and other wastes, to create a biogas installation.
