We have cleaned up 10 tons of waste, says Bilegtur from Mongolia
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.
