We launched our Akademi Cevre Recycling Center in KidZania in August 2020, so that our children between the ages of 6-14 can learn by having fun. Here, our children learn the Circular Economy with fun. At the end of their experience, they become Waste Management Specialists. https://akademicevre.com/akademi-junior/ )
From pre-school students to master level students; We gave trainings and organized technical trips on topics such as Waste, Recycling, Sustainability, Climate Change, Zero Waste, Circular Economy that serve the Sustainable Development Goals. Students consolidate their knowledge by seeing how a recycling facility works after the training they receive on these topics. With these trainings, we reached over a thousand students throughout the year and received the Low Carbon Hero award in the education category from the SÜT-D association in 2019.
With the income we have obtained from the e-wastes "These Wastes Are Coding" project, which we have been continuing with Vodafone for more than 2 years, coding classes were established in disadvantaged regions for children with limited access to technology. Until today, 7 different coding classes have been established and continue to be established.
With the "E-Waste Mobilization" project with BCSD Turkey, computers that are idle are repaired at Akademi Çevre facilities and reused. These computers, through various NGOs; With the introduction of online education, children who have inequality in education are provided with computers. A total of 76 computers have been delivered to our children in need so far.
