About the Project

 

Training Course is about promoting new ways of employment using Small Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (SWEEE) as a method for social inclusion of young people with economic obstacles – youth with a low standard of living, promotion awareness about waste as global issue and raising EU Citizenship activities.

 

 

 

The main goal of our training course “Reducing electronic waste and promotion of EU citizenship” is to offer to participants new learning approach of waste and demystification of this topic that can lead to young people better opportunities for self employment and promotion of EU citizenship values. On our TC participants will use those learning methods in everyday work with young people with economic obstacles – youth with a low standard of living in their local community life.

Idea is to show how recycled materials from small waste electronic and electrical equipment (SWEEE) can be reused like cheap recourse. We can solve several problems with reusing them. One of them is to improve living conditions by decreasing amount of waste in our local communities. The second one is to gain materials that we can use to create some new and useful products and the main goal is to give to young people chance to learn new skills which can help to them to get easier access to employment.
