Zero Waste Program

 

This program aims to promote a sustainable lifestyle, with a focus on domestic waste management. Its purpose is to equip participants with practical tools and concrete actions they can take to reduce waste, vermicompost or compost organic waste generated at home and upcycle waste into useful and decorative items, contributing towards a circular economy.

It also provides environmental curriculum resources for the classrooms through science and arts-based approaches, enabling sensory and cognitive development.
