On February 29th, 2020, Grenada Coalition of Industry and Services and GEF Small Grant Fund signed an agreement to implement the “Capacity building of young people to reduce waste by reusing paper at schools in Grenada” project.
Capacity building of young people to reduce waste by reusing paper
This project is being implemented by the Grenada Investment Development Corporation. The aim of this project is to help reduce the amount of paper and paper products entering the landfill and creating an avenue for the re-use of paper. This would be undertaken by conducting workshops to educate participants on how to recycle paper as well as create drawing books and journals.
The project targets artisans and under-employed/unemployed young people between the ages of 16-35, and entrepreneurs interested in learning the process of recycling paper.
