Ekopak at EYOF, the biggest international sports event held in Sarajevo after 14 Olympics Games
More than 900 athletes from 46 European countries took part. We are proud that our capital Sarajevo, together with East Sarajevo, was a host to the European Olympic festival for the young (EYOF). Ekopak was a part of this successful story. In corporation with public utility company RAD and EYOF, Ekopak placed containers for packaging waste disposal on the Olympic mountains Igman and Bjelasnica and inside of the halls Zetra and Skenderija. This was also a great chance for awareness raising of the new generations about importance of package waste recycling.
Ekopak and NGO Incubator Munja introduce the International program “Eco-schools” in schools of Bosnia and Herzegovina
The first info seminar on the international program “Eco-school” was organized by Ekopak and the NGO Incubator Munja. The Eco-School project was developed in 1994 by FEE – the Foundation for Environmental Education, which is headquartered in Copenhagen. Now is being implemented in more than 60 countries of the world and 50,000 educational institutions, and also started in Bosnia and Hercegovina.
In the organization of the Munja Incubator and Ekopak, with support of Tetra Pak Company, the first info seminar on the international program “Eco-school” was held in Sarajevo, attended by representatives of primary schools, local authorities and municipal enterprises.
The aim is to educate a new generation of young people who will be environmentally conscious, empowered and active in their communities.
This project is of great importance for the development of the system of selective disposal and recycling of packaging waste, since internationally established standards encourage children of school age, teaching staff and local communities to establish and develop in schools awareness of the importance of waste recycling and environmental protection in general.
This info seminar is the first in a row, since this is a long-term project and will continue in the coming years.
