UNIBE Students Join the Creative Recycling Wave with the ReCrearte Program

Tuesday June 16th, 2015

As part of the celebration of the Environment Week 2015, on June 2, Unibe hosted an orientation session on ReCrearte, GFDD/Funglode creative recycling program. A total of 65 students majoring in Marketing, Medicine and Advertising joined the “green” wave of creative recycling. In addition, after the lecture, the young people enjoyed GFDD’s award-winning documentary “Garbage or Resource? A Dominican Republic Experience,” which provides an overview of solid waste management at the national level, and provides practical solutions for its management.

These activities are part of the Environment Week 2015, which has included a series of national and international documentaries –in the framework of the DREFF Environmental Film Screenings– aiming to raise awareness and deepen the understanding of the local public on environmental issues.

The ReCrearte program aims to raise public awareness on the three golden rules, or 3Rs, for the proper management of solid waste: reduce, reuse and recycle. The workshops demonstrate and underscore the idea that recycling waste and transforming it into art can strengthen both the individuals and the communities alike.
