Along with the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Ecology and Natural Resources Ministry has launched a contest to promote recycling among Azerbaijanis.
The contest "Create Yourself 2021" is held under the slogan "The future is in your hands". The contest aims to encourage initiatives among Azerbaijanis to contribute to efforts to reduce waste production and maximize recycling and reuse.
As part of the project, within one month every Azerbaijani citizen will have an opportunity to upload videos and photos showing how they protect the environment by turning waste into useful products on the "Create Yourself" platform.
Authors of the three best ideas will be respectively awarded AZN 1,500, AZN 1,000, and AZN 500. The contestants' handicrafts will be evaluated by experts and development specialists.
