Introduction to the course, what to expect in the modules and some housekeeping to get you started.
An overview of the global plastic problem and scale of what is part of our times’ biggest environmental concern; climate change.
Take a close-up look on the opportunities and constraints of the Southeast Asian context on plastic waste. Local behaviour, access to alternatives and infrastructure all play a part.
Look at when plastic usage became so common, what it’s made from and its direct link to climate change.
What is being done (or should be getting done) at the top level. Scalable solutions to recycling and what needs to happen next.
The biggest impact can come from making single-use plastics obsolete and no longer a part of our daily lives.
Whilst not in essence single-use, there are a lot of convenience products we’ve been sold as necessities that you can reduce by sourcing alternatives and downsizing on what you actually need.
An intro into what is known as the Zero Waste Movement – catchy name but it can seem intimidating so this module is a gentle intro to some simple and meaningful exchanges.
