Mineração Paragominas, Hydro's bauxite mine, has developed environmental awareness actions in Paragominas, focused on young people in the region, as part of the initiative to organize and strengthen the municipality's recyclable waste cooperative and support solid waste management.

Last Monday, 04/15, 480 students from the 6th and 7th years of elementary school at Escola Belarmina Fernandes, in the Jardim Atlântico neighborhood, participated in dynamics , video and recreational activities to make young people aware of the relevance of recycling (dry waste, organic material and waste).

Students from the Federal University of Pará (UFPA) participated in an event that took place on Wednesday, 04/17, in the vicinity of the Municipal Market in the region, in partnership with the Secretariat of Urbanism of the Paragominas City Hall (SEMUR), to explain to the population the correct destination of these materials with the distribution of informative content about the entire municipal selective collection process. More than a thousand people were impacted by this action.

“The objective of this project is to support the implementation of selective collection in the municipality and the continuous improvement of the management and production efficiency of Coopercamare - Recyclable Material Collectors' Cooperative - and strengthen our commitment to a sustainability and educational agenda”, analyzes Luana Carvalhosa, Senior Manager of Social Programs at Hydro. “We are committed to & nbsp; making a positive difference in the municipalities where we operate and initiatives like this allow us to act effectively, exercising our role as a good neighbor and contributing to a more viable society”, he adds.

These actions started in January 2019, through the diagnosis of the cooperative to verify the current situation, in addition to offering training and training actions to the members. This month, the project starts a cycle of environmental education actions involving the general population.

Between April and June, several educational actions will be carried out involving students from municipal schools in the region, who will participate in workshops on Selective Collection and recycling to stimulate the role of children as multipliers of good practices for the correct disposal of recyclable waste.
