“Talking” bins in Veliko Tarnovo teach children to recycle

Follow-up on the climate change public awareness project financed by the German Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.

On 07.03.2017 NTEF visited one of the series of lessons performed by the students of “Dr. Peter Beron” school in Veliko Tarnovo as part of their project on climate change. The project “Learn to teach” included education on the causes and consequences of climate change, the impact of waste and recycling through “talking” bins. The preparation of the project included study trips to а waste treatment plant and to the Bulgarian Ministry of Environment and Water. It is one of the three projects aimed at increasing the awareness of Bulgarian students on the topic of environment and climate, which received awards in the “My climate” competition in 2015.
