Event Details

Many protected areas, including Ukrainian ones, are suffering from a growing visitor pressure.
Inappropriate visitor behaviour and an enormous increase in plastic waste is bringing previously unknown challenges to daily life. Incorrect waste management poses a serious threat to the environment. To establish an effective waste management system, introductory data collection and analysis should take place and existing problems and possible solutions for improvement must be identified. This training session provides an overview and examples of protected areas’ waste management systems in different countries as well as offers recommendations for how to lay the groundwork for effective waste management.

Please register RSVP for this course.

As part of the five-session online training course “Ranger Training on Tourism and Waste Management” Ukrainian Protected Area staff, NGOs, interest groups and other stakeholders from Ukraine attending a minimum four out of five sessions will receive a certificate issued by the Ukrainian State Environmental Academy of post-graduates and management and the European Wilderness Society. Please see under Related Events the other online training courses.
