“Education does not mean teaching people what they do not know. It means teaching them to behave as they do not behave.” John Ruskin
Education is a strategic and effective tool for behaviour change. The What Waste Where Strategy maximises the use of education into the future and strategically demands more of it, in NetWaste’s efforts to fulfill its broad strategic objectives.
All education programs and projects delivered under the What Waste Where Strategy will directly seek to promote actual changes in behaviour. This Strategy outlines the way forward for NetWaste in moving its Councils and communities toward better waste management. It provides a road map for the future use of education as a key tool for NetWaste and its Councils.
What Waste Where delivers a strategic approach, through the use of effective educational mechanisms, that goes beyond just raising knowledge and awareness; it goes beyond some of the more traditional approaches that focus education only within the formal education system, schools, universities etc. What Waste Where goes towards delivering knowledge, awareness, skills and attitude based education that impacts on what people do and how they change what they do to reduce waste and recover valuable resources.
