The biggest threat to the Lake Ohrid is the modern age waste. Plastic waste being the most dangerous. It envelops the beautiful pearl of Lake Ohrid in a plastic bag. Besides for its beauty, the lake is known for having the highest biodiversity in the world taking into account the number of endemic species per surface area. But for how long? This video is produced to sensitise the inhabitants of Pogradec region about the value, beauty and threat of waste to the lake, with the aim to inspire and motivate all generations to better manage their waste by reducing, reusing and recycling it. It is part of the waste management awareness campaign of the project Towards strengthened governance of the shared transboundary natural and cultural heritage of the Lake Ohrid region, coordinated by UNESCO in partnership with the authorities of Albania and FYR Macedonia, ICOMOS, IUCN and ICCROM, and financed by the European Union with the co-financing by the government of Albania. The waste campaign was designed and implemented in partnership with the Municipality of Pogradec, and in consultation with the local NGOs Une, Gruaja and sustainable tourism operator Explore Pogradec.
