USJE supported the national campaign “Macedonia Without Waste 2013” for the second time

On October 5th, 2013, the second national campaign “Macedonia without waste 2013” took place in almost all municipalities throughout the country. The goal of the campaign is to encourage civil activism and voluntarism as well as to raise awareness and habits of the citizens for proper waste management. The main emphasis is placed on collection and proper disposal of waste on certain locations. The action is part of the national campaign that consists of activities for waste disposal, education and promotion. With this campaign, Macedonian citizens joined the global action “Let’s do it! World 2013” that is officially supported by the European Parliament and this year will be ongoing in 107 countries.

USJE supported this action by providing to the organizers, Ajde Makedonija NGO and the Municipality of Kisela Voda mobile equipment needed for collection, loading and disposal of the waste, informational posters about the action, sandwiches and water for 220 participants as well as transport and other services.
