An initiative has been launched by Ministry of Municipality to educate school students about recycling practices
13 Feb 2024News
The Ministry of Municipality has started a programme to teach schoolchildren about recycling techniques for sustainability in collaboration with the Ministries of Education and Higher Education. The sessions, which are part of the "My School is Sustainable" campaign, will instruct kids on recycling techniques in three stages.
Enhancing social and economic well-being in society and promoting sustainable development are two of the Ministry of Municipality's most crucial elements of its plan to propel Qatar forward. Targeting 200 male and female pupils from 15 elementary schools, the project will be carried out by Al Rayyan Municipality, a member of the UNESCO Learning Cities Network, in collaboration with the Seashore Group.
It will strengthen students' involvement in recycling and help realise the goal of the Zero garbage Campaign, which is to get rid of all garbage, supporting the Ministry of Municipality's sustainable development plan.
To fulfil the Qatar National Vision 2030, the programme will teach elementary school children the value of protecting the environment. The "My Sustainable School" programme was introduced with three educational sessions titled "Paper and Plastic Recycling" as part of its initial phase. It addresses the recycling of plastic covers, wastepaper, and containers as well as their use to the planting of agricultural seedlings and creative endeavours.
The country's government and private entities are the goal of an integrated project that the Ministry of Municipality launched to sort garbage at all stages from the source. This initiative represents significant progress in the field of waste management.
In order to help achieve the Qatar National Vision 2030, the General Cleanliness Department is putting several initiatives into action that will speed up the waste sorting program's implementation at the source, implement the Ministry of Municipality's strategy for public cleanliness, and ensure the integrated waste sorting program's successful implementation at the source.
