February 22nd-25th ENO-Global Network of Schools and Communities for Sustainability, together with the University of Karelia, the University of Eastern Finland, the North Karelia Vocational Training Center and the NGO Nagano (Japan), organized an international 4-day conference for students – Zero Carbon Waste. The main conference’s topics were: climate change, the circular economy, microplastics, and forestry. Lithuanian gymnasium was represented by two great students: A.Kuokštytė and U.Jankaukaitė. The girls prepared the presentation by choosing the topic “Circular Economy in Lithuania”, during which they touched not only the topics of circular economy, environmental protection, sustainable development in Lithuania, but also presented the activities, campaigns and projects carried out in our gymnasium.

The conference was attended not only by students from Spain, Northern Macedonia, Peru, Japan, Kenya, but also by invited experts from Japan, Finland, Greece and Malaysia. We  say a big thank you to Aida and Ugne and hope that this will not be their last step in contribution to the growth of the circular economy in Lithuania.

Also a sincere and big thank you for all organizers of the conference, their job and efforts. You did a really great job, guys:)
