The project focuses on waste reduction through artistic mediation. Infact art is reworked by scholars and mediated through culture and environmental sciences through teachers’ conscience. Scholars made draws about the topic, some very significant as the draw made by Arabic girls dreaming social concepts in a new reality. The draw shows a church attached to a mosque, it seems that young people to be mediators between cultures, needing interculturalism, dialogue and peace instead of war and weapons. Scholars understood the Plastic Food message: through waste reduction a different society is possible, European cooperation can cross any border. Thanks to Pierluigi Monsignori’s lessons, scholars of the secondary school of Montone expressed the need of reduce consumption in nowdays society. Symbolically switch off the light is the vision of reality and of future. Energy saving brings to a better future: less waste, less pollution not only less waste of ener gy.

The Info session 2c includes a review of the 5 UUD tutorials, all converging towards empowering organizers for civic events design and management : to work independently on the UUD platform, to understand the key concepts of the plastic pollution approached here and have available sources of information on the spot, to see good practice examples fo civic events centred on art installations, to understand what civic competences they need to develop for being goo dorganizers of civic events and how, to be able to design and plan the dissemination strategy and tools for a specific civic event

In view of the training in Lithuania and the achievement of the socio-civic competence building tutorial, the conclusions of the TNA in Braila are briefly given : 70% declared themselves beginners in the field of socio-civic competences and civic events; 50% had never been involved in organizing civic events; 50% had been faced with a low involvement and reduced interest of youth in new learning thems and civic actions.

The author shares the specification for socio-civic tutorial dedicated to organizers of civic events with youth from Braila which should include knowledge about the theory and practice of socio-civic competences, civic events and art installations as instrument to promote civic messages; knowledge about the necessary steps to initiate and organize a civic evengt; skills to involve young people in civic events, to design and organize local civi events; leadership and time management skilss; positive attitude towards independent learning on the UUD e-learning platform, participation in workshops , learning in information events under this poject but also taking other oportunities offered on the training market; constructive attitude to build on the declared socio-civic practice- that of beginners; building on existing advanced skills such as communication, creativity, creative problem solving.

A presentation of the www.plasticsfree.eu as it looks after Spain was made with an emphasis on the following sectiond: Updates, Newsletter, Documents as potential sources for the UUD tutorials.
