November 15 is World Recycling Day, or World Recycling Day.
Recently, the world community has been paying more attention to solving environmental problems, the rational use of the region’s natural resource potential, and the development of recycling.
Recycling is the process of returning resource components to the life cycle. In the developed countries of the world, waste recycling is long and serious, the best laboratories are working on the development of efficient technologies, and in society there is a changing view of waste as the end product of use.
The Quality Management Department joins the international initiative and conducts educational and cognitive activities on the problems of recycling and conservation of the national ecosystem.
The main purpose of the event is to attract students’ attention to environmental pollution issues and to teach them how to deal with waste responsibly. At the Quality Management Department, recycling are studied in the discipline of Fundamentals of Environmental Management.
On November 20, 2019, the lecturers of the department held a lecture-seminar “Recycling – living without garbage” and discussed a number of questions on the legal and economic aspects of waste management in Ukraine (Associate Professor Tatiana Zborovskaya), the situation of household waste management in EU countries and Ukraine (Associate Professor Olena Tkachenko) and sources of environmental pollution by household waste (Associate Professor Yuri Gubin).
We hope that our efforts will increase the awareness and social responsibility of students in the development of recycling and environmental safety.
