As part of Emirates Environmental Group (EEG), the Middle Wing students of JSSIS, Dubai participated in a can collection drive on the 27th of February, 2020. This campaign aimed to gather the biggest possible number of aluminum cans for recycling by encouraging the support of the community and thus providing a boost to the local recycling industry and reduce the quantity of waste going to landfills.
Students worked zealously in line with the group’s efforts to protect the environment by promoting awareness. This campaign added to the aim of achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals particularly Goal No. 12 which calls on the importance of Sustainable Consumption and Production.
The event strived to promote and educate the community on conservation issues through action-oriented programs.
