Environmental Education and Training

Organisation (Stakeholder)

RECYKLA INTERNATIONAL

Background

Environmental Education and Training is a key component to the implementation of strategies in management of e-waste and hazardous waste pollutions to attain holistic Sustainable Development. It is also important to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) , in particular Goal 12 on Sustainable Consumption Production and Goal 13 on Climate Change and further the Paris Climate Change Agreement 2015 Adoption,Ratification,Accession and Domestication

Approach

This need to be tailored around Education, Training Networking and Technology framework where Education need to focuses on inspiring, encouraging, and supporting learning institutions to develop and implement their own transformative strategies for establishing green, resource-efficient e-waste management (including their consumerables) low carbon institutions, re-orienting curricula, engaging students and communities in activities for environment and sustainable development. The Training framework to focus on developing applied competence by enhancing knowledge in business, institutions and awareness on e-waste management(and waste in general) as a business opportunity aligned to circular economy. This equip the target audience (mainly mid-level managers and policy makers) with relevant skills, values and attitudes on key environmental and sustainability themes, issues and emerging concepts such as ‘Green Economy’ ‘Green Technolgy’ ‘GREEN CITIES’ ‘SMART CITIES’‘GREEN FINANCING’. It can be enhanced through scheduled training courses and leadership programmes in learning institutions such as universities. The Networking framework to focus on coordinating and supporting creations of linkages and synergies activities with partners at local, regional and global levels on e-waste management and hazardous material environment ( and waste in general) and sustainability. Encourage and strengthen local, regional and global networks for environment and sustainability on hazardous materials and e-waste management’s. Technology framework to focus on developing tailored solutions that are not costly which create efficiency and effectiveness in delivering results. These technology come inform of hardwires and software. Friendlier business environments need to be created to allow for innovation to thrive supported by more human and financial resources allocated to Research and Development incubations centers. This is enhanced through supporting existing and emerging Mobile developers, Software engineers (Software) and inventors of technology-machines (Hardware) on standardization, Piracy/counterfeits, knowledge on intellectual properties,and markets. Thus  big data generated by use of Mobile Apps, IoT ,Intelligence Asset and ICTs solutions would be further simplified by data analytic tools  to help us the consumers to assimilate the into ; policy formulations, planning, product design  ,environmental audit, education, and financing   .     

Results

In doing this, North-South, South-South cooperation will be enhanced and further establish linkages with other on hazardous materials and e-waste management’s. Therefore the objectivity of this is to inspire, inform and enable nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations. In this way it will; • provide governments and people with the opportunity to develop awareness, knowledge, skills and commitment in order to protect and improve our environment for a sustainable future; • Incorporate environment and development dimensions into the educational processes; • Create new environmentally- friendly behaviour patterns, encouraging sustainable lifestyles and fostering ethical responsibilities; • Sensitize individuals, groups, communities and nations to their ecological, economic, social and cultural interdependence and developing general environmental and development awareness; • Foster environmental education and training for all; • Promote effective public participation in decision making with respect to environment and development issues. • Promote mainstreaming use of technology to deliver result This will also be achieved by promoting innovative, action oriented, and value-based environmental education for sustainable development by ensuring that environmental considerations are taken into account.Facebook; ;  facebook.com/Recyklainternational Twitter; recycklaintl. @recycklaintl
