Who we are

Our Vision

A world free of waste. One of the biggest challenges of humanity is dealing with waste. We at Recycle Up! believe that if every citizen, every organization and every country tries hard enough to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste, a world free of waste is possible.

Our Mission

Empower the youth to develop local solutions for environmental and societal problems and truly make a difference in the world. Our core belief is that local problems have to be solved by local people. Furthermore, we believe that true societal change is driven by the Youth and that the more people strive to make a difference in the world the better our world will be.

Our Values

We are impact-driven.

Everything we do, we do in order to have a positive impact on people and society. We constantly reflect and assess the impact of our actions. We analyze and measure our impact through the people we empower.

We empower each other.

We empower ourselves and our partners to achieve each other’s highest potential. We create a learning environment that fosters and motivates us to gain new skills, strengthen our knowledge base and share our experiences.

We are stronger together.

We are based on the understanding that we can only achieve our goals as a team. We believe that teams with diverse backgrounds, skills and level of experience are the better teams.

We respect and appreciate each other.

We create an environment where everybody enjoys working together. We treat everyone with the highest respect and value each other’s opinions.
