9. Garbage Hero

Eco-Education Project “Library ECOstyleˮ at the Lviv Regional Children’s Library, Ukraine

Patron, Ira / Rusakova, Lilia

Abstract

After an incident causing multiple deaths at a landfill in Lviv, Ukraine, in May 2016, the Lviv Regional Children’s Library created the environmental education project, Garbage Hero. This project is ongoing since October 2017, with thirty-eight events held to date where nine hundred and seventy-one participants, children and adults have learned how to sort garbage and recycle through entertaining presentations and workshops. A computer game on garbage (waste) sorting called Garbage Hero was provided by partners of the project, while the ECOcorner at the library offered interactive events such as planting greenery, cleaning up a nearby park and using eco-packaging for books. Knowledge gained from this project was shared among librarians throughout Ukraine.
