egypt3During the period of 19th to 22nd of July 2018, LTCP UN-UNESCO in cooperation with IIMSAM organized summer ’18 camp with the theme Beat the Plastic Pollution. It took place at TU Berlin Campus – El Gouna, and created a unique atmosphere for innovation, teamwork and learning. The camp combines lectures, workshops, hands-on experiments, and social activities; to foster the participant’s learning experience. 2018-Theme: Beat the Plastic Pollution: The theme for this Summer Camp 2018 was to simply teach the youth about the three R’s of the environment “Reuse-Reduce-Recycle” and how to practically and effectively apply them. Following the fact that more than 30% of our waste is packaging material; then it is widely advisable not to get rid of this waste, instead; we could make full use of it in more smart and eco-friendly ways such as: Reusing our packaging things again instead of throwing them away, this could be done in simple and creative ways though. What’s more is: Recycling what is possible from the materials we use in our daily life. Recycled items are put through a process that makes it possible to create new products out of the materials from the old ones. Last but not least, we cannot ignore that: Reducing our daily amount of waste is the best way to help our environment.
