INTRODUCTION – Why is this a Global Justice Issue?
The common entry point to explore waste, and particularly plastics, is looking at the impact it has on our oceans. While valuable, it only tells a tiny part of a global story and often misses the core tenet of Global Citizenship Education (GCE) – its human rights base. It is really important that our students understand our global waste systems and the consequences of waste as a broader global justice issue and how the environment, people and the economy are all interlinked.
