Educational eco-project aimed at developing a culture of waste sorting in schools and communities and promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle.


As long as the war continues in our country, each of us must do what we do best. Our participants in the Zero Waste School project, who planned to implement their own local initiatives in the spring, continue to fight for a clean environment even in this difficult period: sorting tanks are installed in bomb shelters, and toloks are arranged in relatively safe places. If our participants do not give up, so do we. In the conditions of war, we, unfortunately, are forced to abandon the plans that were built at the beginning of the year, but we are already reformatting our project.

Project mission

Promote the development of local communities in small towns and villages through a project approach. An important component of the project is the dissemination of a culture of waste sorting and environmental use of resources.


Klitschko Foundation projects have always been a space of trust, security and support. We try to ensure this even in conditions of war.

Unfortunately, we can't implement an all-Ukrainian offline project, but we will definitely do it after our victory.

In the meantime, we plan to implement the following measures:

  • • online meetings with teams for brainstorming, and setting up a new project format. Online meetings will also include psychological support.
  • • update of the digital project Zero Waste School on the Impactum platform.
  • • creation of waste collection and disposal centers on the basis of schools. Participants from different regions will be able to establish cooperation with these centers.

Who can participate?

We continue to work with teams that were trained on the digital platform Impactum in 2021.


Combination of digital and online formats.
