Cash 4 Trash

The training activity took place
in London, UK
organised by One Terrene International

Aims & objectives

Our project will cover to main concerns, namely unemployment and environmental conservation. It is known that unemployment is a major concern for all EU countries, and we are also aware of the environmental problems we face. The idea is to combine the two and try to achieve solutions for both problems. We will look at how we can use waste, items which are generally turned into pollution as a form of income. This will allow people who are in desperate need of finding employment to be able to start working from home or to start small businesses in their communities with very little costs. This project will give value to waste and also reduce unemployment. This project is especially of importance to young people in smaller communities.
