The Litter Less Campaign educates children and youth around the world on the issue of litter and gives them the opportunity to engage their local communities in awareness-raising activities.
The Litter Less Campaign is a joint initiative of the Mars Wrigley Foundation and Foundation for Environmental Education. Since its launch in 2011, the Litter Less Campaign has educated over three million students around the world about the challenges of litter and waste in their communities and empowered them to become leaders driving sustainability and positive behavioural change.
- To reduce the litter and waste footprint of communities through changes in students’ attitude
- To increase student knowledge and practical skills in preventing and managing litter and waste in the contexts of the global sustainable development agenda (SDGs)
- To improve students’ behaviour in preventing and managing litter and waste
- To promote and improve the schools’ waste management
- To create documentation of good practices and disseminate through social media and website
- To collaborate with other schools nationally or internationally in order to disseminate good examples, encourage to take action and increase the positive impact
- To create responsible youth through the Eco-Schools programme methodology and educational principles
How does it work?
In the Litter Less Campaign for the Eco-Schools programme, participating schools will implement the Campaign through the Seven Steps framework.
Each school is required to monitor the waste and litter produced in schools with the aim of improving waste management as well as implement one Community Action Day.
Prize money is available for this project.
