The World Packaging Organisation WPO is committed to educate those that have not had the privilege of educational opportunities on packaging technology.
Education is critical to achieve the WPO’s mission of “Better quality of life through better packaging for more people” and with leadership from the Education Committee this strand of our work is promoted and organized.
Through the Committee, packaging courses are organized and financially supported in those parts of the world where there is a lack of provision and a desperate need for greater expertise to help address problems of economic and social development. The Committee is also compiling a register of WPO’s recognized courses so that those who are looking for “fit-for-purpose” education and training provision in different countries have a source to which they can turn. Packaging education has never been more critical to help ensure that the world’s resources are used as effectively and economically as possible and through its work the area, the WPO will make a significant contribution to improving knowledge and expertise.
