Educating for citizenship to build a better environment!
Building more responsible environmental generations dictates SUMA’s activity in the area of environmental education and awareness, which is characterized by substantial investments that go beyond the competencies contracted by the municipalities the company acts in.
By undertaking a policy to invest in the civic training of the general population, especially youths, SUMA has a unique background and extensive expertise in environmental education comprised of over four-hundred awareness campaigns geared at generating a critical conscience that acts to promote change and development.
Conquering collective civic responsibility on a national scale implies promoting the acquisition of, and maintenance of, urbane individual and social skills, and respect for public spaces and equipment, as well as for depletable natural resources through adopting behaviors and routines of reduction, reuse and recycling.
Destined to contribute towards raising the participation levels and co-responsibility of waste producers, initiatives carried out by SUMA in the field aim to increase the efficacy and efficiency of production services, especially in regard to urban solid waste collection and urban cleaning, and in increasing the general population’s quality of life.
The recognition of the effectiveness and behavioural mobilization capacity of the promoted environmental education, as well as the growing importance that the issues of prevention to protect the environment play in children’s civic education, led, indeed, to the creation of an active citizenship and environmental awareness custom area in MEO Kids, getting SUMA the responsibility for the contents creation and management for the cable TV provider, in this area.
