The program conducts extensive outreach and assistance to encourage participation and mandatory compliance. It is entirely funded by “pay-as-you-throw” rates, providing financial incentives for both citizens and businesses to divert waste. The Green Job Training program employs economically disadvantaged people from different backgrounds to conduct outreach in the field. Providing direct face-to-face assistance, the program helps citizens become aware of waste issues and start sorting waste correctly.

BEHAVIORAL CHANGE

BEHAVIORAL CHANGE

Behavior is the mirror in which everyone displays his own image.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Poet

Even when new technologies come out weekly, people can often be a mass of unchanging habits. This category covers those initiatives that educate people, raise awareness, and work towards better morals and habits at a global level. The best technologies can do little to save the planet if individuals do not decide to use them.
