Program Overview:

The event featured six participants, including five women and one man, engaging in a cleaning campaign while raising awareness among passersby. Plogging was showcased as an active way to contribute to the community and promote environmental responsibility. This initiative reflects SNCF and Mongol Olle's commitment to fostering a culture of environmental consciousness in Ulaanbaatar, demonstrating how localized efforts can inspire positive change in communities.


Cleaning Campaign at Swan Lake

It included waste separation education and a clean campaign at the Gun-Gallut Locally Protected Area. The program aimed to instill a sense of environmental responsibility in young minds, encouraging them to think about and actively engage in environmental protection.



Program Overview: The initiative brought together 38 participants for waste separation education, ecological lessons, and an environmental cleanup drive. Following these activities, SNCF provided education for making separate waste bins to the participating schools to promote waste separation practices. Additionally, in mid-November, SNCF will conduct another visit to the schools to offer further environmental education.
