Eco-quest “Sort responsibly”

We often talk about environmental protection, about the negative phenomena that surround us in everyday life – pollution of the environment by industrial waste, emissions of not only industrial but also domestic waste in the rivers and lakes, and simply about the garbage that we see on our streets. Nevertheless, it isn’t an external force that pollutes everything around us: it is done by the people who live next to us, and sometimes by ourselves.

Although we personally may not destroy nature, if we keep quiet and do not fight against those who do it, then we essentially become partners in the crime. The task of each of us is to treat nature responsibly: distribute garbage, recycle, and give preference to reusable items instead of disposable ones. Often, an ecological attitude begins with a small step – choosing an ecological bag instead of a package, and gradually becomes a way of life. Our mission today is to preserve the wealth that nature has given us and increase them, protecting them from destruction.

Oksana Kremin (Head of the organizational and mass work department of TRENCSY) held a thematic environmental event called “Sort responsibly!” for children from the summer Christian camp on August 3rd. Thus, in a fun game, the participants of the quest raised serious issues of recycling and sorting garbage on our planet and tried to solve them.

During the team competitions, young people demonstrated excellent knowledge of ecology at the stops “Sort correctly”, “Lifestyle”, “Decipher the expression”, “Eco-labeling signs”, and “Eco-crossword”, “What’s superfluous?”. According to the results of the competition, the teams were awarded diplomas for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. We hope that the knowledge and practical skills acquired during the quest will help children take care of the environment and convey information to others. The future of our planet will depend only on the responsible steps of each of us.

The event was held within the framework of the project “Churches, religious and public organizations for the environmental of national minorities”, implemented by the Interreligious and Environmental Civil Forum of Eastern Europe (IRCEF) (head by  Alexander Bokotey) in cooperation with the German Nature Conservation Union (NABU Bundesverband NABU International ) under with the support of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Auswärtiges Amt) project coordinators Ivan Tymofeiev (NABU)Nataliya Kulya (IRCEF).
