Óscar Rubio: “Boys and girls are educational representatives of recycling and environmental sustainability”

Why is recycling education so important in schools?

Knowing how to properly manage all waste, respecting the environment and knowing what we can do to protect our environment are some of the great lessons we should teach the children of the future as a society. Education from a very early age in the field of waste prevention, reuse and recycling is essential to raise awareness among families and instill the planetary advancement behaviors we want for ourselves and future generations.

What is the role of minors in sorting household waste?

Too often, technical staff or political representatives are directly overlooked regarding the current pollution or climate change situation, and the veracity of the facts is often questioned, as we have confirmed with temperatures this summer and this fall. It is a warm and abnormal, near reality.

In this sense, boys and girls are real educators of the waste problem and environmental sustainability. When a txiki tells us adults that this material goes into this container or that these other wastes are not dumped here, no elder questions his judgment and starts to separate it without question. Therefore, as I mentioned earlier, education should be done from a very young age. They are essential aids in communicating the importance of prevention, reuse or waste separation to their homes.

What actions for minors have been developed by the Consortium to promote recycling?

We carry out a large number of actions from the Navarra consortium. For example, to cite some of them, we support a comprehensive and in-depth education program in Primary and Secondary Education alongside activities for 0-3 year olds. Theoretical-practical sessions on waste prevention and management, food waste, responsible consumption, excessive clothing consumption, visits to treatment plants and more take boys and girls as heroes.

What goals does this first recycled mascot contest pursue?

In addition to raising awareness among Texans, our goal is to impact the families and towns where the initiative is run, as the benefits have a direct impact on the towns themselves and of course the whole of Navarra. We want the little ones to understand waste as a resource that can be given a second life and reused; What we call the circular economy.

The beauty of this action is the beauty and artistry we will find in the design of the mascots and the participation and teamwork of the whole class. In addition, all these works can be seen in a traveling public exhibition that we will hold once the competition is over and three winners in each of the participating categories have been announced.

What are the benefits of recycling materials?

Recycling preserves resources, reduces pollution, extends the life of materials, saves energy, albeit with different uses, helps mitigate climate change, the so-called green economy, in short the amount of benefits that will have an impact on the development of a large region and ultimately on our Community and our planet.

Is Navarre society aware of waste segregation?

Definitely. Citizens are becoming more and more aware of how important it is to produce less waste, and they are getting into the habit of sorting it correctly and putting it in the appropriate container. However, there is still a long way to go, especially in matters related to responsible consumption.
