To raise the awareness of the importance to protect the environment, learning center Tonloab started a program for young people.
Community Hero Vannak Pen invented the project which is called “Clean Environment Starts From You”. Piloted on July 23, nine students attended. The project aims to educate young adults to take care of their environment and to become role models to their community. The goal is to educate more than 100 young volunteers by the end of 2019.
To make the project sustainable, the team discussed on how a role model needs to be:
An important part of the project is not only the protection activites themselves but also the inner attitude and changes in the participant’s behaviour. Students learned to share, to be responsible, to propose and elicit ideas. If we manage to reach 100 members by the end of 2019, our community will not only be clean but also more responsible towards common values.
