waste pollution

Parkop encourages residents to take ownership of city

Parkop said NCDC is doing all it can to improve the environment and needs everyone to start taking ownership and be responsible for the city they live.

“NCDC spends millions in cleaning the city but it cannot do the job on its own.

“We need everybody’s support because the issue is with people’s bad habits.

“Residents need to be educated on taking ownership and responsibility in order to change their mindsets,” Parkop said.

He stressed that Port Moresby cannot attract businesses and investors if the city is not clean.

Sustainable Coastlines PNG (SCPNG) founder Ryley Webster says education on the effects of waste pollution is important so that people will be aware of the dangers of pollution.

SCPNG is an award winning PNG non-profit organisation, supported by the global Sustainable Coastlines brand that creates solutions for environmental challenges through projects.

Webster highlighted that effective awareness activities include practical education for students, using art as a vehicle for social and environmental change and awareness through sports.
