1. UN SDG 11

How can we promote sustainable waste reduction practices in urban areas?

  • One of the prominent difficulties faced in our present time involves effectively handling waste, particularly in large urban centres marked by high population density and a lack of citizen engagement in organized waste disposal methods. This challenge is specifically evident in Myanmar, a nation that is still in the process of development and is facing challenges with the establishment of efficient waste management practices. Your insights and proposed solutions have the potential to contribute towards the establishment of an improved, sustainable, and more enjoyable community.

2. UN SDG 12

How might we encourage households to adopt recycling practises for both perishable and non-perishable goods?

  • Disposing household waste systematically plays a significant role in upholding an eco-friendly environment. The collective efforts of all households within a society should be directed towards embracing conscientious recycling approaches. Effectively educating each household member about the adoption of recycling techniques requires the implementation of creative and innovative approaches to public education. Your inventive proposal holds the potential to enhance the awareness of various recycling methods among every household.
