CEMEX launch educational programme to raise awareness of circular economy
A NEW environmental educational programme for UK school children has been launched by building materials giant CEMEX, which aims to help children better understand and contribute more to sustainable development, through the transition to the circular economy and by promoting a responsible and sustainable lifestyle.
‘A Circular World’ is free for all to access and uses a multitude of resources to practically understand and address the major sustainability-related challenges facing society. It is the latest initiative announced by CEMEX as part of their global climate action strategy – Future in Action – demonstrating the company’s commitment to ensuring that all generations understand their role in the transition.
Hosted online, the programme features a fictional team of young people across the globe who need the help of participants to solve different environmental problems.
A Circular World is currently live for children in academic years 5 and 6, with content for those in early years and secondary education due to follow soon. With the new educational programme – which can be completed in English, Spanish or Catalan – CEMEX are able to raise awareness, in a dynamic and fun way, about waste-management, optimization of resources and care for the environment and community.
