With 53 Municipalities, already more than 16.000 registered SONCHEVI PIONERI, GENERALKA WEEKEND 2023 was the biggest environmental action ever held on the entire balkans. Together with our partners from Pivara Skopje, Pakomak and with the support of Nula Otpad, Sparkasse Banka, the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture, MAN AND MOUNTAIN organised this event with more than 450 schools.
We are very happy to announce that the Ministry of Agriculture together with National Forestry has fulfilled their promise to dedicate one tree for every 10 kg of trash that we all collected together with more than 8.400 volunteers, 190 Organisations in 26 Municipalities in North Macedonia during the GENERALKA WEEKEND 2022.
