To honor Earth Day this year, FLEX alumni from Turkmenistan organized a project on plastic recycling. During one-week 6 alumni collected plastic waste from households. On May 9th alumni provided the collected plastic to the recycling company in Turkmenistan. As Bagtygul Annayeva’09 (Balkanabat) stated: “Current levels of usage and wrong disposal of plastic generate several environmental problems. Recycling of plastic is one of the most important actions currently available to reduce the negative impacts on environment”.
In addition, as part of ongoing commitment of FLEX alumni to plastic recycling, alumni are planning to receive a recycling bin for the American Councils office in Ashgabat.
Due to international travel restrictions in place related to the current global pandemic, American Councils will not be conducting FLEX testing for the 2021-2022 academic year in Turkmenistan.
The testing for the 2022-2023 academic year is planned for late 2021. Please continue checking our website for any updates on eligibility criteria and new testing schedule. If you have further questions, please contact us at email@example.com
