ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION AND AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS
WHY EVERY ONE OF US MATTERS.
Austria has always been a pioneer in the separate collection and recycling of packaging, e-waste and batteries. And we have been a role model in terms of waste prevention and anti-litter campaigns. Part of this success is due to environmental education initiatives where children learn about green and sustainable behaviour. Still, we need to do better to attain the ambitious climate targets and get closer to a seamless circular economy.
Our environmental education and awareness initiatives
Everyone has to join in if we are to conserve resources and achieve a circular economy. Households are asked to do their bit, too (smart shopping and resource use, proper waste sorting and disposal), as consumer and producer responsibility need to go hand in hand. This is why we run information and motivation campaigns together with our partners.
