Sebastia Youth Center hosted the next stop of the exhibition “Re:waste – How Sweden is rethinking resources?”
With the friends of the center, we sat down and discussed the environmental situation and more specifically the waste management in Lezha District. Bringing into conversation the actuality of the management plan for the next years, we analyzed the points that need immediate improvement, mostly the creation of a recycling system that is fully implemented.
Part of our conversation were two environmental activists from Germany, with whom we had the opportunity to share experiences and to understand their perspective on how this system is kept functional in their country. A big effort in Germany is made by the demand of the account that the state itself has towards the citizens to implement the rules and the ways they help to facilitate the whole process that makes possible the good functioning of a circular economy.
The exhibition attracted the attention of young people as well, with whom we talked about the model that Sweden brings and what we can do as individuals to positively influence the environment.
The ways we can take care of and do our part for the environment are different, but it is very important to have a mindset of change, and when we meet such people, we get motivated and have a more positive perspective that change can be done for as long as there are people willing to insist to have this kind of change.
We sincerely thank Sebastia Youth Center for the hospitality and the fruitful conversation.
