Maintaining Eco-Efficiency at Home
Everyday eco-friendly tips from UNICEF and the Austrian Development Agency to improve your life
Narek: I hope people won't forget that they are a part of nature. Nature is what makes everyone whole. When people harm nature both directly or indirectly, they, first of all, hurt themselves. My message to Armenians is the following: “By protecting nature, we are defending our homeland.” Sometimes you do not need to do great things. If we make our place better, we will have a powerful, green homeland and, eventually, a planet. To achieve this goal, I learn, I teach, I act.
Ani: We now know how to sort waste in order to decrease the amount of trash that is dumped. The next step is to send it for recycling, but how? There are 24 waste processing companies in Armenia but not one waste sorting bin in our community. It’s time to change this!
Alla: Our community does not yet have real access to waste recycling. As residents of this community, we decided that we have the right to apply to the municipality and demand that a waste collection point is built in Charentsavan. We have already sent our appeal. Let's see what the reaction will be.
Daniela: I am very excited about Greta Thunberg's movement. I understood that everyone could play a significant role in making the world a better place if they desire. That's why I got so excited about this local initiative. The topic is close to my heart. I hope that our messages will hit the target and encourage others to act.
David: We are ready to contribute to changing the situation. I can try to research and find out more and spread the word about solutions people need to hear about. I can help to amplify these messages in my network to get people to act but we all have a role to play in this process.
