Training Programs

  • Make channels, educational series, documentaries, and social media platforms to educate and raise awareness about sustainability

  • More technical and skill-based schooling.

Greening Businesses and homes

 

  • Install energy saving lights

  • Innovate to reduce the carbon footprint in electrical and industrial fields.

  • Sell electrical goods to re-license them to be fixed and upgraded. This is the new cradle-to-cradle circular economy recommendation for the technical cycle to mirror the biological cycle.

  • Remove excessive packaging of vegetables and fruits in farmer’s markets. This would also reduce the cost of making and buying the packaging, and the overall cost of the items, as well as cut down on plastic waste. Replace with eco-friendly packaging, with a limit to reduce the cutting of trees.

  • Design a tax system reduction to encourage renewable energy and green architecture; Sanctions on companies, organizations, factories and cars that fail to comply by environmental responsibility laws.
