27, South Africa, East London Empowering youth for climate action challenge

I had the opportunity to create a video pitch about climate action I care about which is E-Waste Recycling because with more waste, governments must place the responsibility for the post-consumer phase on producers. I got to outline what would I need from policy makers in order to make it happen.

How do you address climate change?
Share with us your “recipe”!

I would enable individuals to recycle by ensuring that refuse collectors have quarterly E-waste collection efforts at collection points or from homes and to incentivize manufacturers to extend the lifetime of these devices by refurbishing and reusing parts to create a more circular economy.

Start where you are, climate change is everyone's responsibility. We can make a difference, together, to protect the home we know and love.
