Sustainable Plastic Recycling in Mongolia

Waste management is a key issue in Mongolia due to urbanization, industrialization, and increasing consumption of packaged products. Plastic waste is a particularly serious issue as it is causing widespread pollution and is also often dumped illegally, both by citizens and companies. CCR is implementing the project “Sustainable Plastic Recycling in Mongolia” (05/2020 – 04/2024), funded by the European Union (SWITCH-Asia program), along with four project partners: Environment and Security Center of Mongolia, EcoSoum, Mongolian Sustainable Development Bridge, and T.G. Masaryk Water Research Institute.

All for the YOUth, YOUth for the all

Mongolia is a country of young people. More than one million youth aged 15–34 represent the largest demographic group in the country, constituting 34.9 percent of the population in 2019. Youth is shaping the future of the nation, which depends on how well youth are integrated into the country’s development and become responsible and productive citizens. Young people hold tremendous potential, yet also face many challenges: finding work, gaining quality education, participating social activities, and so on. Thus, we work to increase NGO and CSO capacities to empower the youth and to better integrate them in society through the support of innovative programmes and initiatives that encourage youth to be active and visible in public policy and local economies. As well as, we connect them with job trainings, volunteering and mentoring programmes and more.
