'Make Academy Greener' Campaign Got Underway
January 27, 2011
On the initiative of Ukrainian-Canadian student exchange programme 'Canada World Youth' that has been functioning in Ostroh Academy for over a decade, and the Student Brotherhood, garbage sorting and recycling campaign 'Make Academy Greener' got underway on 27 January.
The project also embraces GREEN CUP competition among Ostroh Academy campuses in collecting and sorting all sorts of garbage. Moreover, 'paper for recycling Mondays' were also initiated. The action will last until 27 February, and the winner campus will receive presents.
"We came up with the idea during our stay in Canada. After our return home, we have been divided into groups that will organize various projects within the global GREEN CAMPUS CAMPAIGN proclaimed by the exchange programme 'Canada. World Youth' and Ostroh Academy for the next five years. New beginnings are difficult, of course, and yet one of the main projects 'RECYCLING IN ACADEMY' has started. We receive a powerful backing from the local authorities, university administration and the students. Our ultimate goal is implanting 'garbage culture' in youth, which begins with such basics as garbage sorting and recycling. Undoubtedly, the campaign will bring us closer to the Western world and teach us take care of the environment", said exchange programme student of the Faculty of Economics Viktor Artemenko.
