The aim of our project is to increase public awareness of ecology and strengthen international cooperation in the context of caring for the environment, promoting public awareness, promoting responsible consumer behavior, reflection on the consequences of our everyday behaviors and habits, indicating that the action of one man affects the functioning of entire communities .
