Environment for Equity

The Global Shapers Venice Hub aim to drive action to safeguard the environment and to foster the recycling of plastic bottles, while shaping an equal transportation system. How? The Hub will collaborate with a specialised firm to install bins that enable to store PVC bottles and hence to recycle them, to provide a second life to plastic. Furthermore, the Hub will collaborate with the city administration and transport company to provide a discount on the ticket of ferries. Recycling plastic will decrease costs for the city as well as promote the project #enjoyrespectvenezia. Part of the money deriving from these benefits could be reinvested in providing more equality within transportation, i.e. discounts on ferries for tourists.
