Waste Management Technology in Regions, phase II, WMTR II, participated at IWA Winter Fair for the very first time in the venue of Radisson Blu Hotel on December 2, Saturday.
Many beautiful hand-made Christmas accessories made by school and university students from reused materials were presented at our counter in the framework of WMTR II competition My Christmas Tree. All the income from this exhibition-sale was given to the Dog Organization Georgia.
Due to diversity and a large number of works provided by the participants, the competition will continue until 13 December. After the completion of the second phase of the contest, the works of selected participants will be exhibited in Telavi, where participants will attend the workshop about reusing old stuff creatively.
For those who couldn’t manage to see and buy our Christmas accessories on December 2, you can still join us on 23-24 December at Christmas Fair in Fabrica, where WMTR II will also have a counter.
About My Christmas Tree
Christmas competition, My Christmas Tree, intended for school and university students and other creative-minded individuals took place in October and November within Waste Management Technologies in Regions, Phase II (WMTR II).
The competition was aimed at promoting public involvement in environmental activities, launching initiatives and development of creative vision among youth, promoting the re-use concept and organizing a Christmas fair for charity purposes.
Under the rules of competition, anyone could send photos of their hand-made Christmas accessories made from old items. The photos were then uploaded on a Facebook page of WMTR II program.
The first phase of the above competition ended on November 26. Based on the number of “likes” collected by the authors of photos and on the quality of the produced items, 20 participants were selected for a trip to Bulachauri Green Centre to prepare even more Christmas accessories from the old stuff.

WMTR II program is implemented by CENN with the support of USAID.
