Green Indonesia Waste Education for primary schools in Indonesia
by Indonesian Waste Platform (Other relevant actor)
Introduction of Green Indonesia - comprehensive environmental education program for age 4 to 14 in Indonesian schools.
This program was developed in 2013. The program includes 2-day Teacher Training with focus on Reduce, Re-use and Recycling, impact of waste on environment and establishment of school waste banks. Through our collaboration with ADUPI (Indonesian Plastic Recycling Association) we can connect these school waste banks to nearest contact in the ADUPI network.

One challenge: distances from remote regions to recycling industry - mostly located in west Java.
Aim: develop online learning materials based on the printed version.
