HOPE is a new project expanding the experience gained through the UUD; it brings in new partners and new learning initiatives for partners' staff and beneficiaries such as educators, young people, diverse stakeholders and the local general public . Organizations from Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Turkey lead by the UK partner plan to tackle the plastic journey from birth, growth and decay to future visions on mankind wealth and health.
There will be workshops including photo exhibitions, public talks, digital video VR/3D presentations related to plastic junk disposed in natural and urban/rural environment and how to reduce irresponsible and harmful impact on people and promote acceptable behaviour.
All will build on experience exchange published on a blog and feed a joint HOPE handbook which the partner’s organisations' will spread in the local languages to their staff, target groups, stakeholders, professionals and public participants. A wider HOPE network will grow to sustain the project outcomes after the project lifetime.
Links will be added to the UUD Tutorial 2 Info-Doc to enrich its content and educational remit as agreed with all partners.
