The amount of waste in Mongolia is steadily increasing due to the rapid urbanization and shifting consumer behavior and most of it goes to insufficiently-controlled disposal sites or is dumped in nature. Therefore, many young people come together and actively clean up litter and waste from rivers, forests, and the city streets. One of them is Bilegtur O., a member of the Civil Society Organisations’ (CSOs’) Network established under the EU-funded project “Sustainable Plastic Recycling in Mongolia” (SPRIM).  Bilegtur O. is the leader of the youth eco-club and Let’s Think Green Club. He is sharing more information about the activities with his club members and their future goals in the following interview.

Mongolia, well known for its nomadic traditions, natural beauty and wonderful landscapes, attracts many international travelers and visitors every year. Domestic tourism has increased as well and many Mongolians now travel locally to visit their family members and relatives or to explore the countryside.The number of exemplary young families who increase public awareness and attitude towards waste pollution among their communities is growing, mainly as a consequence of the enormous amount of waste left in the environment by domestic travelers. Caritas Czech Republic (CCR) in Mongolia made an awareness-raising video about waste pollution under the “Sustainable Plastic Recycling in Mongolia” project with a family who promotes the use of bicycles. Purevdorj, who took part in the video, will share his family’s experience of an eco-friendly lifestyle. N.
