Recommendations

Green Wave is one of the project that can connect other social groups and people to ACT and to PROTECT our environment from very small action like planting a tree, collect an old bottle, wasted paper...

The message "Spread Extraordinary Little things" can use for many other JCI's project and other organizations.

Green wave is a real example of the connection between NGO, NPO group that can act together to create powerful and positive results.
