Wat houdt de activiteit in?

Nowadays the ecological transition is one of the cities major challenges. Cities concentrate a significant part of innovations but they also face many difficulties : pollution, lack of vegetation, urban spreading. We would like to invite 10 european young volunteers to design and build together a street equipment for urban waste collection. The idea ? Through recycling or upcycling, many organisations (NGO, associations, companies or local authorities) aim to limit the impact of what we can call « forgotten garbage ». We mean socks, tights, lights bulbs, caps… Some collecting points usually exist in cities but they are often really far one from the other and this doesn’t facilitate their access for citizens. We wish to create within 15 days a waste collection equipment. The exact shape of the structure is not determined yet, it will be one of the missions for the volunteers. Our goal is to offer a specific equipment made with different materials, one for each type of waste.
