Several young people from the JOOP programme visited the Mobile Ecopark in Pinoso as part of the activities carried out in the programme.

During the visit on Wednesday, October 5, Antonio Martínez, environmental educator, explained to them how the different types of waste are separated, which waste can be taken to the Mobile Ecopark, the importance of managing waste correctly and the problems that waste generates, etc.

He also explained how to get a job in the company that manages the VAERSA Mobile Eco-parks, as well as how to work as an Environmental Educator.

The JOOP programme has been running since 2017 and provides different tools related to skills development, career guidance, courses in study techniques and improving employability, visits to companies and leisure outings.

It is a perfect alternative to inaction, and in some activities, experiences will be shared with young people from other municipalities where this programme is also being developed.
