The problem of environmental pollution is actively discussed. But, at the same time, Ukrainians is not so experienced as Europeans and only begins to implement waste sorting measures. Many people do not understand how huge the problem is. If we do not start to solve it, the consequences can be catastrophic.
Ordinary Ukrainian family generates about 1.5-2 kg of household waste daily. What happens to this garbage next? How does it affect the environment? Is it possible to change the situation for the better?
The VUM online team gathered experts on the household waste management and representatives of key environmental initiatives of Ukraine. Together they developed the first free online course. There were no similar training programs in Ukraine before. The main goal of the course is to systematize the information concerning household waste and explain how Ukrainians can become more environmentally friendly.
The course is in Ukrainian. It is freely accessible and open to everyone.
