Clean Neighborhood: Collecting garbage with the Don Bosco Hotel School
To further involve the local community into the Don Bosco Hotel School’s sustainability initiative, teachers and students in Sihanoukville (Cambodia) have conducted a garbage collection.
The students have collected plastic bottles lying around the DBHS. The aim is to talk to the neighbors about environmental protection and to raise awareness on this issue.
The plastic bottles are given to a company that recycles the plastic bottles. Recycling is little known in Cambodia and the recycling possibilities are limited.
The students were full of enthusiasm and want to repeat this garbage collection on a regular basis. They are proud to make an active contribution to environmental protection in their neighborhood.
The project supports the trainees of the Don Bosco Hotel School in Cambodia in gaining an understanding of sustainable tourism and thereby enhances the job opportunities of the young people. At the same time, the tourism in Cambodia in general will get more sustainable by profiting from their multiplier effects.
