SIRCLES in Lebanon raises awareness to students in Byblos
June 12, 2023
More than 170 students from both private and public schools in Byblos, Lebanon, actively participated in a green competition organized under the SIRCLES project. The project aims to foster environmental consciousness and sustainability among the youth. To achieve this, the students attended informative sessions led by NEETs (young people who are not in education, employment, or training) that focused on two key topics: sorting waste at its source and minimizing biowaste generation at home.
Following the awareness sessions, the students were encouraged to showcase their creativity by submitting drawings that conveyed the essential message of “Don’t waste your biowaste.” These drawings aimed to raise awareness about the importance of responsibly managing biowaste.
To recognize the outstanding efforts and contributions of the students, a committee comprising esteemed individuals in the field of environmental conservation and project management was formed. Together, they diligently reviewed and assessed the submitted drawings, ultimately selecting 145 students as winners.
In recognition of their achievements, the selected students were awarded agricultural and plantation toolkits. These toolkits were designed to empower and inspire the young winners to delve further into sustainable agricultural practices.
