PIMP MY CARROZA
This is a movement created in São Paulo, Brazil, which works to generate visibility for recyclers, promote their self-esteem and raise society’s awareness of the important work that they carry out.
Pimp My Carroza was held for the first time in Medellin on September 4. This group activity aims to make visible, dignify and acknowledge the city’s recyclers by painting and decorating their carts (manual carts, which they push and pull themselves) with humor, awareness and street art.
With the support of the Medellín City Hall, volunteers from the city, artists and graffiti artists helped 80 recyclers and their families to improve their carts and to spend a day full of joy, demonstrating that we really believe in the importance of their work. RFG participated with the Medellín team as volunteers and donated two flight tickets to the organizers.
It was held in Bogotá on November 6, where we all participated as volunteers and made a contribution with the purchase of T-shirts and caps for all the employees.
EYES EVERYWHERE CAMPAIGN
The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism and the National Tourism Fund (FONTUR its acronym in Spanish) launched the #OJOSENTODASPARTES campaign, which aims to be the connection that invites all economic sectors and civil society to be alert to situations that put children and adolescents at risk. This is particularly in the context of tourism activities, which aim to be characterized by the responsibility and ethics of their participants, under the conviction that tourism is an instrument to build peace and foster harmonious coexistence.
