This chapter provides information about environmental education programs and learning materials. We lobby for inclusion of environmental education in national curricula to advance waste literacy. It is fundamentally important that children – from a young age onwards – learn about the principles of 5R, 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.
Just follow the drop-down menu and dig deeper for information on learning materials in various languages.
Feel free to send us information and links to learning materials you like to share.
