September 24, 2022

The NGO “North Land” started the implementation of the project “Select ,because you can do it!”, with the main goal of improving the quality of the environment in Berane, by establishing the concept of primary waste selection for residents along the road near river Lim and in educational institutions. Sustainable management of municipal waste, which is an inevitable product of everyday human activities, is of great importance for the preservation of human health, the environment and natural resources. In order to improve the situation in this area, North Land will, through the implementation of project activities, contribute to strengthening the ecological awareness of citizens, but also establish a European model of waste collection in Berane, with a focus on educational institutions and residents of the coastal area of the Lim River. When it comes to the importance for the local community of this project, which will be implemented for eight months, we can state that it will be multifaceted: the condition of all segments of the environment and the health of citizens will be improved, and the ecological awareness of citizens will be improved, and thus will maintained improved environmental condition. We expect that young people, with developed ecological habits, will become the foundation of the future sustainable community in Berane, which will see waste as a resource, not as ballast. The project is supported within the Regional Program of Local Democracy in the Western Balkans – ReLOaD 2, financed by the European Union from the funds of the Multi-Country Civil Society Facility, with co-financing by UNDP and local governments included in the program.
