R.A.D.I.Kal.A., Recycling Awareness Design Innovation Kalamata Association

R.A.D.I.Kal.A. is aiming to raise awareness about environment and health through involving citizens in waste recycling combined with physical activity as the core idea of the association that is formally registered in Stockholm, Sweden under the non-profit NGO-number 802509-5384 and based in Kalamata, Greece.

We believe that it is possible to combine the two major health problems, namely pollution and insufficient physical activity can be dealt with through Active Recycling. We also believe that Innovative Design of recycling methods not only takes recycling to a higher level, it also makes environmental projects more attractive for the younger generations.

Further, we believe that raising awareness about health and environment among school children is the most efficient in the long-term. For this purpose we have adapted a pedagogical approach to be applied to our projects.

Innovative design for awareness raising and combining recycling with physical activity and citizen participation is the main guideline in our projects.

We believe that the circle of collecting-recycling of plastic waste should end on a higher level than where it started. The end product of recycling disposable waste should be upcycled into a non-disposable product. The whole process must be designed to add to citizens awareness about environmental pollution and physical inactivity. Further, the upcycled product should clearly promote environment, health, and physical activity, meaning Radikala will withstand to design of articles which might encourage pollution or unhealthy consumption or behavior.

MUNDUS Association – Spain

The MUNDUS association is a non-profit organization established in 2013 with offices in Santa Coloma de Gramenet (Barcelona) and Zaragoza.

Our main task is managing international training and mobility projects – internships, volunteering, youth exchanges, training courses – for youth and for youth workers. We aim at promoting educational values, intercultural learning, or volunteering through non-formal education.

The mission of MUNDUS is to help young people prepare to face the challenges of life in this active and changing world through participating in new international experience.

We count on our experience of having sent more than 400 volunteers/EVS (European Voluntary Service) and a further 500 participants for youth exchanges and trainings courses abroad.

Another one of our strengths is international mobility for vocational training centers. Every year we send abroad an average of 200 students to complete an internship in a country of the European Union. At the same time, we host a around 500 students in Spain every year, in all professional fields. We work with a network of companies in Aragon and Catalonia, which are committed to supporting practical learning of young Europeans.

We also engage with the local community, where we organize different activities and events to raise awareness of the benefits of international mobility programs and cultural exchange through non-formal education.

The people who form the MUNDUS team have gone from being participants in mobility projects and volunteering to organizers and trainers of these type of opportunities for other young people, motivated by their own experience.

Throughout our history, we have organized and participated in various projects of international mobility programs such as Youth in Action, Erasmus +, Europe for Citizens, European Social Fund – Youth Guarantee, or PON, among others.

We believe that education in values and social dialogue need international mobility as a tool to build an inclusive, egalitarian, and intercultural society. MUNDUS aims to be a small but powerful engine pushing in this direction.
