A group of 68 young volunteers from 5 different European countries (Cyprus, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Spain) organised diverse activities to stop single-use plastics in 5 cities (Strovolos, Berlin, Cork, Padova and Barcelona).
The European Solidarity Corps project brought this big group together through the project Single Use Plastic Awareness – Stop All Plastic Straws (SUPA SAPS). The volunteer team boosts local volunteers’ ongoing efforts to protect the environment and combat climate change.
In the summer of this year, the volunteers presented their initiatives to local authorities in Barcelona and Berlin (#EVCapital cities 2014 & 2021). There was capacity building on upcycling and circular economy topics during the activities.
