Waste to Welfare: A Circular Economy Story

This film chronicles the enlightening journey of two students, Raisya and Julpi, through the landscapes of sustainable waste management in West Java, Indonesia. Starting with their route to a school amidst litter, their perspective shifts after attending an environmental workshop. They realize waste isn’t just a challenge but a potential resource. Delving into recycling and environmental rejuvenation, they champion a town-wide shift to a circular economy. Collaborating with schools, local authorities, and sparking awareness drives, they transform their community’s perception of waste. Beyond mere disposal, they see it as an avenue for economic prospects. This narrative celebrates youthful initiative, community transformation, and the lasting impact of education on environmental preservation.
