Awareness Raising Programs
SPCC has been conducting various awareness programs to aware the local communities, trekkers, guides, porters and students by organizing annual cleanup campaign, workshops, celebrating World Environment Day with school Eco clubs, and through radio programs. The main objective of these programs is to raise awareness and make people more responsible for garbage management.
The SPCC regularly organizes cleanup campaigns as a part of awareness raising campaign and strengthening public participation in waste management. We conduct weeklong “Khumbu Public Awareness Raising Cleanup Campaign” each year covering various trekking trails. This annual cleanup campaign involves a weeklong trekking combined cleanup campaign passing major settlements, base camps and high passes.
On the occasion of World Environment Day on 5th June each year, SPCC supports the Eco club Network (a network of 14 school eco clubs of Khumbu) to organize awareness-raising programs at various schools. Awareness raising programs including cleanup campaign, painting competition, plantation and musical events are organized each year in various schools marking the World Environment Day.
SPCC also conducted awareness-raising programs on waste management through Khumbu fm twice a week. Worey Lungbi Lapsey - a Sherpa language based program targeting the local communities and Paathsala – a program for students were produced and broadcasted through Khumbu fm as a part of awareness program.
