People’s Process in Community-based Plastics Circularity Social Enterprise Development

Approaching the issue of waste management through community engagement and mobilization is a strategic way to ensure the long-term sustainability of the efforts while doing a whole-of-society approach. By definition, a project is considered sustainable when the community and its stakeholders can continue the project on their own.

To do this, efforts must be culturally, economically, politically, managerially, and environmentally sustainable. HOCCI Project’s efforts have ensured community and youth engagement as well as an increase in awareness on the issues and acceptability of practices of the 3Rs. Community-driven implementation was encouraged through the Project’s capacity-building efforts as well as human resource investment, both of which are necessary for intervention success.

Developed under the Healthy Oceans and Clean Cities Initiative, this paper looks at how the People’s Process became a significant driver for community-based plastics circularity social enterprise development. It has specifically looked at organizations in HOCCI’s partner cities of Manila, Calapan, Davao, Legazpi, Cagayan de Oro, and Ormoc.
