Understanding the importance of building a strong value-based education from a young age, the AUS Day Care Center (DCC) has integrated the theme of recycling in their KG2 program. Children enrolled in KG2 are taught to incorporate the 3 Rs– reduce, reuse and recycle – in their daily life. In order to instill sustainable behavior amongst the students, the importance of preserving our planet and reducing wastage of daily materials such as paper are highlighted at the DCC. Students are also educated to reuse food by using the waste as compost or as food for animals and birds.

Aligned to this theme, the staff and teachers at the DCC encouraged the five- and six-year-olds to celebrate their graduation day held last month in a sustainable manner by transforming recyclable materials into colorful artwork. Thikra Karim, a senior teacher at the DCC, described the event as a triumph with the happy students proud of their role as environmental ambassadors successfully implementing the 3 Rs.

As part of the university’s corporate social responsibility, AUS aims to engage all members of the society including the next generation in the move towards a sustainable future. With an increasing problem of waste accumulating in landfills around the globe, it is crucial to educate the next generation on waste reduction and environmental protection. Every year, 2.12 billion tons of waste are thrown away, waste that would go on trucks 24 times around the globe.
