The Initiative for a Clean City

Organization: Kalta Imedi

Location: Akhaltsikhe, Georgia

Year: 2013

The initiative focuses on the education of students in ecology, waste collection and recycling – yet neglected issues in the Caucasus region. It solves the problem of illegal dumps around the school in Akhaltsikhe. The NGO managed to convince the local government about the need to place the dump containers near the school and empty them regularly. The pupils cleaned the area around the school and cleaned the ditches full of garbage.
