This was made known yesterday, 8th February, 2022 at a public presentation of curriculum on Waste Management And Entrepreneurship Of The ECWA International College Of Education and Jos Green Centre. A programme  supported by Tearfund.

It is an initiative to crack the nut of the high level of youth unemployment in Nigeria through the creation of a curriculum that gainfully provides employment for young people and solves the problem of waste.
“The philosophy of waste Management and Entrepreneurship hinges on the principle of circular economy which is an opposite of a linear economy. Linear economy is associated with wastes, and therefore has ecological implications. It is characterized by take, make, use, and dispose, whereas the circular approach is characterized by reuse, and recycle after use thereby having an ultimate goal of prevention of waste, or zero-waste in the enviroment.”
