CoDeS Case Universiti Sains in Malaysia

School-university collaboration in waste-toresource management Acknowledgement

Visit the blog

Collaboration between school and university provides an opportunity for knowledge developed through university research to be implemented in schools as a response to everyday problems faced in real life. This case study will explore the nature of collaboration between school – university and other communities, the success and challenges during the process of implementation of waste-to-resource management activity carried out in schools based on research conducted in university. Some of the successes include influencing the canteen operator to provide organic waste for composting, while some students started to implement the waste-to-resource management at home. Collaboration with university has raised the schools’ standing in the eyes of the local community, and the state education departments as schools were encouraged to collaborate with universities. However, some schools did not pursue collaboration further as they wish to focus on other aspects of school activities. Other examples will also be discussed and illustrated.
