Hip-hop artist Dedduh and ReLOaD are on a mission: Kotor without plastic bags

“Plastic bags runnin’ high. Plastic bags takin’ a dive. Down the street, left and right. Somethin’ needs to be carried out,” says Dedduh from the Montenegrin band Who See in his new song. The famous rapper has joined the local mission of environmental protection as part of the Regional Program on Local Democracy in the Western Balkans.

The contagious rhythm captures the attention of all citizens, highlighting that with small changes in life habits, we can make a long-term contribution to protecting natural resources, especially in the area belonging to the UNESCO list of world heritage.

The goal of the project “Knowledge for the Eco Action,” implemented by the NGO Dolphin, is to encourage children to adopt environmentally responsible behavior. Four Kotor schools are already involved in the initiative. Through informal education, eco quizzes, art contests, and the creation of urban green spaces, pupils gain valuable knowledge about energy, climate, and environmental protection.

This is not only a “green project” but also an opportunity to develop the next generation of sustainability leaders. Participants will transfer acquired knowledge through peer education, positively influencing changes in their surroundings. Because “Who’s got a problem with me carryin’ a tote, savin’ my dough with it and being eco-friendly hit?”

ReLOaD, which is funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), has supported many projects in the countries/territories of the Western Balkans aimed at developing skills and new opportunities for young people with its activities within the youth component.
