17 Jul Sharing Zero Waste Initiatives with Local Schools in Sanur through Fun Learning

CTC recently hosted 20 teachers and 100 students from around Sanur at our Center for Marine Conservation to learn about zero waste and permaculture methods. The program aims to engage participants in fun learning activities that educate them on permaculture principles and methods that minimise waste to can be implemented at school and at home. 


CTC’s Center for Marine Conservation is a dedicated learning space to inspire people in protecting our environment and the oceans that connect us all. Since its first launched, we built unique facilities to provide an integrated learning space for people from all walks of life to learn and be inspired to protect our ocean. In 2021, we built our zero waste and permaculture garden facilities supported by the Australian Volunteer Program (AVP) Impact Fund. Through the support that CTC received from the AVP Impact Fund, CTC has initiated permaculture initiatives and waste management in the office while striving to become a zero-waste facility. 

Our zero waste and permaculture facilities aim to serve as educational tool and a space for community outreach to learn about composting, recycling and permaculture principles. 

The program involved teachers in learning about the principles of permaculture and waste management, a demonstration of organic composting and a simulation of designing and creating a permaculture garden. The teachers felt this new knowledge inspired them to better manage waste and enabled them to support their students in learning and implementing permaculture principles.   

Students from various schools in Sanur also participated in a program of enjoyable activities designed to enhance new environmental knowledge. They engaged in waste games, presentations about waste and a composting demonstration. 

The main highlight of the activities was that at the end of the program, the students felt that the activities were fun, they gained new knowledge and felt inspired by our zero-waste initiative. During the program, the teachers also engaged the students to implement a waste management program and composting effort at their school.
