The marathon featured the topical issues of formation of the new eco-reality, showcased modern technologies in the process of turning waste into a resource and underlined trends in sustainable consumption.

“We have developed a unique Eco-school project, which algorithm allows us to bring information to schoolchildren on principles of sustainable development and global environmental problems in a game form. We demonstrate how one particular person can change the ecological situation around them. After all, everything starts out small. We explain schoolchildren how to manage projects in order they to develop projects aimed at reducing the use of natural resources for their schools with no outside help and show financial benefits from environmental consumption. To do this, we have specifically developed a methodological manual adopted by the Ministry of Education of Ukraine. The best projects will receive mini grants from Farmak,” said Elena Zubareva during her speech.
