This course has been developed to provide learners with an understanding of the impact of pollution and waste on the environment.

Target Audience

Pollution and waste are everywhere, and it’s doing us, and the earth, harm.

It’s in the sky, the soil, and the water. It’s everywhere, and it’s doing us, and the earth, harm. The good news is we can make a difference. It will not be easy, but it’s worth it. You can hold yourself, your business or your leaders accountable. Making changes like how we dispose of rubbish, improvements in recycling efforts, transitioning to renewable energy sources, and improving our education around the production of waste and pollution are all proven ways of reducing our environmental impact on the planet.

Designed to empower learners globally, this course delves into the realities of pollution and waste and explores what we can do personally, in the community and at work to make a change.

We’re in this together, so together, let’s clean up our act.
