The general goal of the Project is to introduce the practice of reducing the amount of waste and reusing waste in the settlement of Pionirska dolina, Municipality Centar in Sarajevo. Changes in the behavior of community members in reducing waste and reusing it are expected as one of the key results of the project.
The realization of the Project will be guided by the main slogan of the community: "Let's strengthen the community. Let's be a good example to other communities and younger generations."
