Sharing, and sustainable use of resources – the way forward (GAF 2020)

In an attempt to promote sustainability, the concept of reuse/recycle, select women from a chosen community were trained on the making of paper covers using old newspapers/used papers. Two puppet show videos on the topics “Share and care” and “Think Green: Reuse and Recycle” were made to educate a wider population on the importance of sharing of resources and the benefits of reusing and recycling of materials that will go a long way in safe guarding the environment. The videos of the puppet show were launched during the Green Action Week. During the Green Action Week, a webinar was also organised to educate consumers, especially the younger generation, on the concept of sharing and sustainable consumption (the concepts of reuse, repair, recycle, rethink, refuse, reduce) – all the videos were played and the work done by the community women were showcased. 

    • Educate consumers, including the younger generation, on the importance of sharing and sustainable consumption
    • Promote the concept of sharing among students by encouraging them to form a sharing group, collect used clothes and books to be shared
    • Encourage students to share used clothes with the needy and books with other students
    • Conduct competition among students to motivate them to reuse/recycle old clothes. Promote the concept of sharing among members of chosen community
