Currently, plastic pollution has emerged as one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time. About 150 million tonnes of plastic waste is in the ocean, with another eight million, added every year (Jambeck et al., 2015) and by 2050 there would be more waste than fish in the ocean (World Economic Forum, 2016) if the consumers’ perception has not shifted toward a greener style. Vietnam has ranked 4 in the top 5 countries discharged the most plastic waste into the ocean (Georgia University’s research, 2015).
 
WWF, as the leading conservation organization globally, has taken the plastic waste issue seriously. WWF has set the ambitious global target of reducing plastic leakage into the ocean by 50-100% by 2035 and WWF-Vietnam is a key part of that initiative. Therefore, to drive a nationwide perception shift within Vietnamese society on the consumption of plastic products through improved awareness and understanding of the impacts of plastics and deliver behavior change messaging and institutional change to reduce plastic inputs into the environment, a project “Building Plastic Pollution Free Communities” will be conducted under the cooperation between WWF and Prudential.
 
The project will be implemented in three (03) years from November 2018 to November 2021 at two major cities (Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City) of Vietnam. It comprises three (03) objectives, focusing on raising public awareness & actions; children education; and private sector engagement. In order to effectively increase awareness of children and trigger for their behaviour changes, along with different practical activities to be conducted engaging the school children, an educational curriculum on plastic topic will be developed with participation of international experts and Vietnamese consultant under the facilitation of WWF. 
 
WWF-Vietnam would like to invite you as a Vietnamese consultant to provide your professional service to participate in developing an educational curriculum on plastic topics.
