Two awareness raising sessions were held on April 8th and 9th, 2017 in library of Alexandria about the harmful impact of mercury and the need for/benefits of safe disposal of FL. These sessions were in cooperation with the Center for Environmental Studies.
The target audience for the first session was school students from the preparatory and secondary level, and for the second session was university students.
The sessions are part of the Pilot Project “Collection of Waste Fluorescent Lamps in Alexandria”, where the NSWMP raises awareness on the harmful impact of mercury and the need for/benefits of safe disposal of FL and introduces a system for collection of waste fluorescent lamps in voluntary cooperation with the lamps producers. At the end of the sessions, the NSWMP team announced a competition for school and university students as a part of the campaign.
Almost 90 participants attended the sessions and showed interest in participating in the competition.
