Suzie Young: helping Andros become cleaner and greener!

9 AR Despoina Souzi

One of our Clean Green Volunteers from the Cyclades Preservation Fund/British Embassy Fund initiative 

Suzie came to Andros to help the Clean Green Andros Project. Her contribution to the vision for a cleaner and greener Andros was fantastic. She worked for 18  days in total. She collected garbage and nurdles from the beaches of Kourtali, Fellos, Ateni and Zorgos. She also helped clean some of the Andros Routes – path number 9 and the Tromarchia Circular during two Andros Routes maintenance hikes.

Her other contributions included  mapping and recording all the recycling bins on the island. This action completed a significant project initiative to validate the waste services location information for everyone on Andros. Thanks to Suzie’s contribution,  it will be easy to find out where you can recycle anything on Andros as this information will be published on our new website (details coming soon).

Suzie, a Digital Strategy Consultant, also shared her professional knowledge and skills to support the project.

Finally, she participated in a new project research campaign by conducting interviews to find out the views of a few of our Andros locals about waste management.

Suzie, we sincerely thank you!
