Waste pollution has reached an alarming level for us while on a bike trip, says Mongolian family

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. Purevdorj’s family has been riding bicycles for many years after giving up cars that cause air pollution and heavy traffic jams in Mongolia.

Do you know what challenges young people and youth civil society organizations (CSOs) face in Mongolia today? Many studies say that it is difficult for young people to find decent employment opportunities, gain quality education and participate in social activities. Also, one of the biggest challenges is to find funding for their activities and initiatives. Thanks to the European Union and the Transition Promotion Program of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, the “All for YOUth, YOUth for all” project is empowering the emerging youth and youth CSOs to participate in the development and decision-making in Mongolia.
