Agia Napa, Cyprus
SMIT "CREATOR" members were participating in a TC titled Trash for Cash co-ordinated by Nautilos Search and Rescue Team and held in Agia Napa, Cyprus.
Our training course will look at the subject of up cycling, a process that converts trash into saleable items. The
course will look at methods that organizations can get youth people actively involved in their youth centers and also in their community and have an impact on the environmental issues of our
countries. Through the activities foreseen in this training the participants will learn about up cycling and the differences between up cycling and recycling. We will look at methods
to use up cycling for raising funds for organizations and also ways to use up cycling to create job opportunities for young people. The training course will consist of trainers and young people
so that we can get an even perspective of opinions and knowledge exchange. In addition to the up cycling aspect and the entrepreneurial theme we will also take into consideration the environment
and see methods that we can keep young people involved and active in the field of environmental conservation. We will look at methods to keep youth informed about environmental issues and
also too be active in their community.
