How to turn plastic bottles into sustainable business opportunities for Zanzibar, respecting the environment and using a creative recycling approach? From 24th to 26th of June, a team of designers, illustrators, architects worked on this challenge! They will thought, discussed and created new ideas at the Milan Impact Hub that, together with ACRA-CCS Foundation, promoted the “Design Thinking Challenge for Zanzibar”.
The organization working on development cooperation in Italy and all over the world, changed its board of directors. Elena Casolari will continue as CEO. Here below the goodbye of the outgoing president Locatelli.
ACRA-CCS supports the Campaign For a Glass of Water, promoted by Euskal Fondoa, partner of our foundation for the water project "Water and governance" in Honduras for a general improvement of integrated management of water resources at a local level.
The aim of the campaign is to spread among communities a reflection on the importance of the access to natural resources, especially access to water and to bring to light the difficulties that show up because of the lack of this resource, in particular on women’s life.
The human right to water is a global challenge we all have to take action because it is also our duty! We need a glass of water for Pastora, a twelve years old girl that live in El Salvador!
Zanzibar: a gorgeous paradise on earth whose economy is highly dependent on international tourism, with hundreds of thousands of people visiting the country every year. A big business that leaves the local communities with very little benefits: only one out of ten dollars spent in Zanzibar goes to improving the living conditions of the most disadvantaged local populations.
Sustainability lies at the heart of our philosophy and our actions: interventions that will last over time, beyond our mere physical presence, that are economically viable and that prolong their effectiveness and impact in time.
