Kalika Kendra - SWM Learning Center

SwachaGraha Kalika Kendra (SGKK)  a first of its kind composting learning center, conceptualised and curated by SWMRT. Set up as a public project first by the BBMP, Bangalore  with the intention of creating large scale information and awareness for encouraging promotion of best waste management practices of resource recovery through recycling, re use, home and community composting .

The SGKK is a collaborative effort with the local citizen group HSR Citizen Forum (HCF) who are passionately involved in the daily activities of composting, growing and outreach.

This uniquely designed public park , by Foley designs which is a leading professional design firm and various other specialist agencies showcases upcycled art installations, community garden , pilots innovative composting methods and interactive SWM information..


Eco Literacy and Community Engagement Program

Eco Literacy and Community Engagement Programme (ELCEP) is a learning  initiative of SWMRT, for institutions and corporates . It’s an educational  program that engages with  participants  to create  mindfulness around waste as individuals and communities ,  a way of life necessary for significant social change.


Training Workshops - Session by the Experts

SWMRT has a line up of experts who conduct online and offline sessions on a spectrum of topics related to solid waste management and sustainable living  practices. These sessions are very popular with corporates, institutions and colleges in particular.

We have seen evidence that training key stakeholders is important for adoption and implementation of solid waste management principles. While the general public needs just awareness  and practice information, municipal staff and administration need more in-depth training. Training ensures that municipal officers are made conversant with the SWM Rules, regulatory requirements and the technical requirements.
Master training programs using a Training of Trainer (TOT) approach also enables creating a cadre of engaged citizens to bring about change in their ward through constructive engagement.


Trashonomics - A Guide for Children

Though most of the work done around interventions and strategies of waste management was done with individuals and communities , it was often seen that children played an important role in bringing in acceptance for change in behaviours. However this complex yet essential subject of solid waste management and its relation with  environment, public health and sustainability is missing from textbooks.
In an effort to remedy this gap the Trashonomics, an SWM book as a simple guide for children was created and published by SWMRT as knowledge partner, based on its experience and learnings and supported by The Anonymous Indian Charitable Trust (TAICT). It was released by KSPCB on World Environment Day, June 5th 2016.
