A total PR value of 51,439,000 million Kyats (approx. 34,000 USD) was generated in two months. Their campaign has been covered by 45 news outlets such as MRTV-4, Myanmar Times, Mandalay FM Radio and many more.
Air Quality Yangon has received invitations to share knowledge about air pollution at Turning Tables' Voices of Youth, Dagon University, Kokkaya Organics, and Learning Together Platform. They have established themselves as a trusted source on this topic.
They were invited by Search for Common Ground to inspire a group of youth from Rakhine on how to start a campaign.
Along with on-ground placemaking activities, they also launched the “Plastic time-off” online challenge to create awareness of saying no to single-use plastic. The #plastictimeoff challenge has a social media reach of 1,967,881 people.

This project is supported by 3 government officials from YCDC and GAD. The government helped mobilize the community in Tamwe to attend meetings and activities, created a youth committee dedicated to maintain the public space and, gave a speech at the screening day on the importance of reducing waste as a community.
Knowledge and practical solutions on how to reduce waste was shared through digital platforms and placemaking events.
In March 2020, a waste-free public space will be available for the residents of Tamwe and will be maintained by their elected youth committee with support from their local government.
It will be more than just a public space – it will serve as a reminder to the residents that when you work as a community, there is a sense of shared responsibility in maintaining the beauty that you have co-created.
It will inspire neighboring streets to see the value of reducing waste and the possibility of what we can all do if we work with each other.
We co-created a campaign that reflects the girl’s diversity and a fresh, positive approach in tackling harassment.
We provided practical tools and useful technology for the girls to continue engaging more people in their own villages.
Since the girls had no experience campaigning, we developed a simple “How to campaign” guide that is specially written to meet their needs. We equipped them with the tools and knowledge to create change while also protecting themselves from negative attacks.
The simple tools, pratical trainings and heartfelt support from experts empowered the girls to lead the movement in creating a safer environment for all girls.
With their new-found courage, they have been able to speak with community leaders, monks, elders, boys and other girls to join the conversation and be a better ally to all girls.
