@ClimateWed Launch A New Project on #Recycling "#TeachRecyclingEarly"

NIGERIA – Monday, 23rd January 2017 - Recycle means using things that have already been used, to make new things. 

There’s plenty of facts out there on why recycling is important. Nigeria population is growing, and currently each human being adds significant waste to the planet over his or her lifetime.
In order to conserve a clean beautiful earth to live in it is very important to begin teaching students at a young age the importance of recycling. Students are like sponges and observe information well if they learn about it starting at their early childhood education and throughout their school years. They should be aware of the importance of recycling, and therefore we strongly believe each school district should implement into their lesson plans a lesson of recycling in order for the students to begin recycling themselves.  Students should learn about the causes and effects of recycling and from there teach their families of the importance of it if their families don’t contribute to recycling themselves.  They need to know why recycling will conserve a better earth to live in.
Schools can help us teach our students about recycling.  A lesson plan can be created were students have to begin by recycling at their school.  Students can learn about recycling by actually taking part of it both at school and at home. 
Teach Recycling Early initiative is aimed at children in primary and secondary schools. This project is one of the educational projects of Climate Wednesday and it aims to educate and enlighten children on key environmental projects such as Waste Management (Recycling), Climate Change etc. 
This also aims to fill this gap and provide relevant information to enable children to understand the environmental impacts of waste and how to be active participants in bringing about change.

We need your help to
  1. Design a curriculum/lesson plan for the children on recycling,
  2. To provide waste bin that can help in sorting of waste in the school (Pet bottles/Paper) this will turn to an incentives for the school and the student from a recycling company.
  3. To provide support for our implementation phase in the school eg. T -shirt/Posters/Letters/Recycling Materials.
  4. Create a documentary of importance of recycling in Lagos, Nigeria using the success stories of the students.
  5. To create an advocacy toolkit after the project.

We hope with your support we will be able reach more schools in Lagos State. Nigeria.
