Bridging people and waste: Enhancing consciousness in managing waste

Appropriate waste management for a Cleaner Pacific is everyone's business. Whether it is governments, the private sector or civil society, everyone is welcome to participate in the struggle against waste pollution. 

To drastically reduce the amount of waste generated, it is necessary to raise the awareness of individuals to this problem to strengthen consciousness and to encourage changes in behaviour.  It is also helpful to understand the basis of behaviour change so planned, targeted actions are effective and do help bring about the desired results.

This session will explore what it is that different sectors across the Pacific can do collectively, to bring about a sweeping change in behaviour from across our region for a cleaner Pacific, answering the two following questions:

•    How to enhance consciousness in waste management?
•    How to improve and sustain behaviour change?
