The Department of Public Relations and Communication at the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change presented an introductory workshop for the students of Hateen Model Elementary School, under the title “My Creations from My Electronic Waste”. The workshop, which was attended by 33 students from the fourth grade of primary school, introduced the correct and safe ways to dispose of electronic waste, and not to dispose of it in the garbage containers located in front of the houses, because this waste contains highly dangerous and toxic chemicals that may leak into the ground and pollute the water. This is in addition to its severe harm to human health if it comes into contact with it, as well as its pollution of the air through dust resulting from exposure to the sun and its decomposition. The students were also introduced to the role of the state in dealing with this dangerous waste by dealing with it in safe ways, in addition to introducing them to the concept of electronic waste, and its sources from computers, televisions, mobile phones and computer equipment at home. The workshop also presented ways to recycle some waste at home, such as using CDs to make some games.
