Building Plastic Pollution Free Communities

VAS Hanoi is the first school in Hanoi to participate in the project "Building Plastic Pollution Free Communities”.

Within the project a waste audit was conducted at Vietnam - Australia School Hanoi (VAS Hanoi) from March to April 2019. On 13th of May 2019, VAS Hanoi and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Vietnam organized an event to share the waste audit results with teachers and students.

The objectives of the waste audit were to:

• determine the types, characteristics and volumes of plastic waste in order to identify areas where waste management reduction at the school can be improved

• raise awareness and create behavior change by engaging school children in activities that will lead towards a plastic pollution free sustainable environment. Plastic pollution has grabbed the world’s attention and is now one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time.

In order to drive a nationwide shift in perception within Vietnamese society on the use of plastic products and packaging, the project aims to engage students by raising awareness and understanding of the impacts of plastics, and deliver behavior change messaging and institutional change to reduce plastic waste entering into the environment. VAS, Hanoi is proud to be in partnership with the WWF and Prudential Insurance on this important issue.
