WORKSHOP: 4B PLATFORM: FROM ROMANIA TO ALL WCD COUNTRIES. *HOW TO CLEAN THE PLANET WITH NO VOLUNTEERS PICKING UP THE TRASH!
Moderator: Ionut Iordachescu, Romania
4B is a solution to notify authorities about littered areas. Ionut Iordachescu, Romania
Information about littered areas is collected from TrashOut. So in the end volunteers will do the mapping only. Authorities should clean it. Since we started the project in June 2020 in Romania, authorities collected 2700 tons of waste based on petitions sent via 4B Platform.
Waste mapping – a technological tool to raise awareness about the waste problem. Lucia Kelnarova, Slovakia
We will discuss how to use technology to engage citizens and create awareness. We will go into specific examples on how to use TrashOut for marketing, fundraising and how to create a system that works with either volunteers or ministry of environment. If you have a system you can speed up the process of cleaning your country, even during COVID-19 period when it is hard to organise group cleanups.
