About Inter-school Recycling Competitions
It is an Inter-school recycling competition program organized to foster climate innovation among young people and to develop adaptable, replicable and sustainable plastic pollution solutions among them. This is the first-ever recycling program to engage students across Uganda.
Engaging young people in recycling programs will provide the country with a path to a greener future. As they learn about recycling, they will be more likely to carry these habits into their adult years. Through this competition program, we are going to keep engaging students in fun, healthy and interactive recycling activities that create and nurture environmental awareness, responsibility and advocacy. We aim at challenging and encouraging students to find creative and innovative solutions to the environmental challenges of today.
These competitions are aimed to increase environmental awareness, foster climate innovation among young people, develop adaptable and sustainable plastic pollution solutions among them.
