    Sustainable Resource Use

    This 8-part module challenges the learners to identify a local waste issue in their community/school and develop a contextualised waste campaign to create awareness and action within their community/school. Through this learner-driven process, the learners will uncover the process that most waste undergoes from natural resource extraction to waste disposal. They will link the concepts of waste and natural resources together in the process of developing a waste campaign. 

    This module embraces Project-based learning, a methodology which challenges the learners to think outside the box and learn through the process, rather than through information reception. It is relevant and exceptionally engaging for the learners involved.
