E-learning course

Description: The e-learning course How to Prevent E-Waste? aims to raise awareness of the scale and the impact of e-waste. The course also provides learners with knowledge, skills, and resources to help minimize their contribution to e-waste.

Geared towards younger people, who are most likely to generate e-waste, the course aims to create change agents, able to act and promote the e-waste prevention.

The 2-hour course is user-friendly, consumer-focused, solution-oriented. After a course introductory module, the course takes learners through the main approaches for tackling e-waste from least desired to most preferred, as follows: 2) recycling, 3) reuse & repair, and 4) reduction.


The course is a collaboration between the UN Institute for Training and Research and the Sustainable Cycle programme.
