These series of activities were the follow-through of the previous activity conducted by INECAR – Environmental Awareness Survey on Solid Waste Management for the Partner Communities which happened last 17 and 19 December, 2013 and 7-8 January, 2014. The survey was designed to examine the current environmental awareness level that is intended to be used in identifying the priority areas of concern for environmental education. Thus, the seminar-workshop series started.
