Environmental Awareness and Actions in Vinnytsia

The “New Life Tree” made from recycled materials generated enthusiasm from kids and parents.

The “New Life Tree” made from recycled materials generated enthusiasm from kids and parents.

Vinnytsia, September 7. During recent Vinnytsia City Day, P3DP actively  promoted environmental awareness and answered questions from city residents and city officials about USAID efforts to improve waste management practices and introduce renewable energy systems.

One of the most popular places to visit during the celebrations was the USAID Tent City that featured many educational activities for children and others.  At the P3DP booth local artists conducted recycling classes entitled “New Life to Old Things,” teaching children how to live a zero-waste lifestyle by being creative and environmentally aware. While the kids were busy, parents learned about benefits that public-private partnerships can bring to a community in general and specifically about the biogas PPP project being developed in Vinnytsia.

Vinnytsia hopes to introduce a comprehensive state-of-the-art solid waste management system that includes sorting, recycling, processing and the closing of the current landfill by 2017.  An integral component of the strategy is a public-private partnership that will produce electricity by burning landfill generated biogas. P3DP assistance is developing this PPP project that will reduce harmful gas emissions, improve landfill maintenance, increase energy independence, and create a healthier environment.
