Project summary:

The project is designed to stimulate nature protection in the Kula-Knjazevac area through joint initiatives for removal of unregulated dumpsites and building an eco-mindset in the cross-border population. Both migitative and preventive measures will be employed to: - increase waste collection capacity and frequency of service, - decrease municipal waste transported to landfills, - trigger a behavioral change in the cross-border society with respect to waste disposal.

The project aims at removing the root causes for unregulated dumpsites and improving municipal waste management through: - provision of modern equipment to increase waste collection capacity, - exchange of know-how and implementation of EU best practices into a joint action plan for waste management in the Kula-Knjazevac region, round table discussions and public debates; - awareness raising on all levels on the importance of individual and community contribution for protecting the environment in the Kula-Knjazevac region. My Green Home cross-border eco initiative will be initiated inviting all residents to participate in cleaning unregulated dumpsites and scattered waste. Special attention will be paid to young people through a joint school campaign to build an eco-mindset in the next generation.

The project will deliver: 3 joint interventions, addressing the preservation and restoration of the cross-border ecosystems, 5 education and awareness raising joint initiatives in the field of preservation and protection of natural heritage, biodiversity and landscape, 3 capacity building initiatives (exchange of experience and know-how) in the field of sustainable use of natural resources.
