Electronic waste (e-waste) is a rising environmental issue affecting every corner of the world.
The production, use and disposal of electronic equipment generates a significant amount of carbon, a major contributor to climate change.
The UK is the 2nd highest contributor of e-waste in the world. Over the last 15 years, the amount of e-waste in the UK has doubled.
The next generation
Educating the next generation of changemakers on sustainability is important. Yet according to UNESCO research, “70% of young people cannot explain climate change, or can only explain its broad principles, or do not know anything about it”.
The youth of today which will soon become our future leaders and we must equip this generation with the solutions and strategies to turn the tide against e-waste.
