CEMEX launches educational program to raise awareness of the Circular Economy

A new educational program for UK schoolchildren has been launched by global building materials supplier CEMEX, aiming to help children better understand and contribute more to sustainable development, through the transition to the Circular Economy and by promoting a responsible and sustainable lifestyle.

'A Circular World' is free for all to access and uses a multitude of resources to practically understand and address the major sustainability-related challenges facing our society. It is the latest development announced by CEMEX as part of its global climate action strategy; Future in Action.

Hosted online at https://www.cemex.co.uk/cemex-and-the-circular-economy, the program features a fictional team of young people across the globe who need the help of participants to solve different environmental problems. A Circular World is now live for children in academic years 5 and 6, with content for those in Early Years and Secondary Education due to follow soon.

The program is designed to capture the attention of children through Escape Box activities and Breakout games, which provide an excellent mix between content and entertainment. 'A Circular World' includes both individual and collective challenges, which can be used as a tool for motivation and for the development of knowledge and skills.

Chiedza Mupfumira, Social Impact Specialist for CEMEX UK, commented: "CEMEX sees the mitigation of climate change as one of the world's biggest challenges, with coordinated action vital if we are to protect our planet for future generations. As part of its dedicated climate action strategy, Future in Action, CEMEX is working closely with communities across the globe to help people understand the role they can play, while also enhancing its operations to meet ambitious sustainability targets."

A Circular World can be completed in English, Spanish or Catalan and the activities for the classroom follow a methodological proposal that favours the learning process of people: motivation, research and introduction of new knowledge, reflection and critical thinking and, finally, action and communication.
