KID DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES TO PROMOTE RECYCLING
- IN COPENHAGEN MUNINCIPALITY
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Konradi - life in and between the houses will, in collaboration with the Municipality of Copenhagen, test the possibilities of involving children in public housing departments with the purpose of promoting recycling.
Københavns Kommune har et mål om at 70% af al affaldsproduktion skal sorteres til genanvendelige formål som led i den nuværende 'Ressource og affaldsplan for 2019-2024'. Et greb til at fremme affaldssorteringen i Københavns Kommune kan være at inddrage børn for at give dem en stemme og medbestemmelse om mere og bedre affaldssortering.
Concretely, two different Kid Democratic processes are pilot tested in two different test departments administered by KAB. The target group is children aged 9-13. The result of the children's democratic processes are the children's own concrete proposals for how to recycle more, and better, in their housing department. This can contribute to changing the thinking and behavior of the children and other residents towards recycling and may also contribute to savings regarding recycling for the individual department.
