Abdullah Yousef: When peacebuilding meets recycling

If we don’t start recycling, we will continue to pollute our waterways, disrupting the balance of life and worsening climate change. Youth are starting to wake up to this and I feel encouraged by the enthusiasm people show about new green initiatives here. Recycling promotes peacebuilding by giving youth a way to spend their free time productively. I tell young people that they can make a difference by starting to recycle at home and not waiting for the government to initiate a national program. We must ask ourselves how we can re-use each item we consume. Slowly, slowly, there is a green revolution starting here.
