On Saturday November 20 at STADE CAMRAIL DE DOUALA BASSA on the occasion of the GLOBAL PEACE GAMES and the CLEAN UP WORLD CAMPAIGN more than 23 youths of the GSA DLA ACADEMY participated to clean up the stadium.

They collected more than 40 Kilos of waste plastics in and alongside the stadium. We also gain this opportunity to collect some signatories on the UNESCO MANIFESTO.

This event was an opportunity to share our vision with young people and talk about the need for a safe environment to practice sport. The activities were finished with a STREET FOOTBALL CHALLENGE

In District 17 of a community called El Corojo in the municipality San Luis, Pinar del Rio, there were some difficulties in the past with teenagers and the overuse of alcohol and cigarettes, as well as underage pregnancy.

To deal with these problems, local GSA teams have been working on a plan that includes recreational activities such as football tournaments, traditional games and other fun based on their interests.

Sports leaders and local inhabitants have come together, and with the Ecoflag, respecting the environment has been added to the project.

The Ecoflag flew in Northern Uganda at an Africa Youth Ministries 'peace through sport program' that included components of environmental awareness and tree planting.

Some of the boys involved were terribly devastated by the war, being abducted by rebels and so on.

There is always an urgent need for sports/ soccer boots, especially for an upcoming International Women's Day Tournament on 8th Match 2010. The tournament is geared up to HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness, peace building, environmental education, domestic violence etc.

Albert Kunihira of Africa Youth Ministries can be seen speaking to the community leaders at a community meeting as well as donating soccer balls to community leaders.

Kayak athletes in Pinar del Rio, as part of the GSA Cuba's strategy to spread the Ecoflag Movement through every sports in the territory, began a plan of activity to take care of the environment and raise awareness about sea conservation.

The coast where they mostly practice is located in the community of "la Coloma". Among the institutions included in this plan are the fishing port, the Filiberto Acanda Secondary school, and the Fire Station. This work is also focused on the restoration and cleanup of the four Medical Clinics and some other institutions.

The main problems are water pollution, the housing conditions, and the highways and roads. This region in spite of being a fishing area is one of the most productive in the country and it is important to guarantee recreational areas for these active and hard working people.
