The opportunity to hear the voice of young eco-activists from Jablanica came through the participation of the Primary School “Suljo Čilić” in the project “Joint Efforts for 5% Less Waste – 5% LESS”, funded by the European Union. The students of the mentioned Primary School recorded a video through which they want to send a strong message about the world they want to live in. They said that they want to grow up in a society that will take care of nature and in which everyone will understand the importance of recycling, preserving environment, but also the importance of reducing the total amount of waste.

Take a look at and listen to the message of these young people on the following link.

This is one of the five primary schools involved in the project, whose students recorded a video to present their views on nature, ecology and the waste management challenges in their local communities. Each of the schools made one video that will enter the competition for the best. The expert jury will award the most successful videos in BiH and Montenegro, and the young participants will be awarded with valuable prizes.
