Importance of Environmental Education
Environmental education is becoming increasingly important is our lives and cities. As cities become more congested, populated, and busy, knowledge of the impact we each have on our surroundings is crucial.
Equally important, is our understanding of how we can contribute to protecting the environment around us. More specifically, educating the public on the effects of waste and how to properly dispose of waste is critical in ensuring a healthy community for everyone.
Education is important for several reasons including:
- Increase in public awareness and knowledge of the consequences of waste;
- Equips individuals with skills to identify and resolve issues relating to waste; and
- Encourages participation in outreach activities such as community litter clean ups.
There are many initiatives, events, workshops, and programs that the province, municipalities and organizations hold to educate and engage individuals regarding waste management.
