Why this project?

The problem of pollution, garbage waste and global warming are nowadays more and more real. Romania faces this situation, but also all of the countries, no matter on which side of the globe they are. The moments for desperate search for solution are coming closer and closer. A lot of countries are trying to make a change but it is still on us the real people, the youngsters that need to start the change.

The main idea behind the Youth Exchange is the promotion of harmonious life with the environment among young people coming from countries from different parts of Europe. Young people, gathered in Drobeta Turnu Severin, will spend 9 days exploring and exchanging ideas about the topics of sustainable development and environmental protection at the local level, promoting common international youth initiatives protecting the environment.


Origins of recycling

Recycling has been a common practice for most of human history, with recorded advocates as far back as Plato in 400 BC. During periods when resources were scarce, archaeological studies of ancient waste dumps show less household waste (such as ash, broken tools and pottery)—implying more waste was being recycled in the absence of new material.

In pre-industrial times, there is evidence of scrap bronze and other metals being collected in Europe and melted down for perpetual reuse. In Britain dust and ash from wood and coal fires was collected by 'dustmen' and downcycled as a base material used in brick making. The main driver for these types of recycling was the economic advantage of obtaining recycled feedstock instead of acquiring virgin material, as well as a lack of public waste removal in ever more densely populated areas. In 1813, Benjamin Law developed the process of turning rags into 'shoddy' and 'mungo' wool in Batley, Yorkshire. This material combined recycled fibres with virgin wool. The West Yorkshire shoddy industry in    towns such as Batley and Dewsbury, lasted from the early 19th century to at least 1914.


What is Recycling

Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production.Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" waste hierarchy.
