The capital's ninth-grader has found a way to motivate citizens to separate garbage collection
The youth camp «Zhastar’s synergies» started to function. 150 young people aged 16 to 29 will present their ideas and projects, the official website of Astana akimat reports.
The youngest participant of the summer camp is 16-year-old schoolboy Aibolat Kurakbayev. The student prepared for the event carefully. To the idea with which he came to the forum, the student pushed the question of how to make the city cleaner. Given that separate garbage collection is introduced in Astana, Aibolat came up with a motivator that should make people sort garbage in different packages at home.
«My invention is called «clean city». People do not want to share the garbage, most often they are lazy. And my device will encourage people to take the garbage for recycling. It works through a mobile application. A person goes to the garbage can, takes his phone, through a special code is identification, and you can take the garbage. For a certain amount, you can get some points. According to my idea, these points can be converted into real money, and for the whole year you can save money, for example, on a decent smartphone», – A. Kurakbayev told his idea.
