Waste & Climate Change literacy

We strive for inclusion of environmental education in national school curricula to advance waste and climate change literacy.


It is fundamentally important that children – from a young age onwards – learn about the principles of 5R and alternatives to single-use, organic and non-organic materials, the importance of proper waste separation, sustainable consumption and production, the impact of littering on land, in fresh water bodies and our ocean, the impact on human health, and climate change.
