First, the students worked in groups and tried to find out what could easily be improved in the school as far as the environment is concerned. They discussed and debated the different actions that could be implemented to reduce waste, the consumption of water, paper, electricity, fuel, transport, food waste and packacking in the school. They also had the idea of creating a kitchen garden and growing organic vegetables which would be cooked in the school canteen. Theyvisited all the other classes and presented their project and future actions.
They consulted with relevant stake holders and authorities explaining their projects and asking for their support. Theywrote letters to the members of the school management board to inform them of the future actions and if need be to obtain a favourable vote. Because of Covid-19 lockdown, most of the actions will be implemented from the 2020 academic year onwards.
They wrote a chart to be displayed in the school.
Letters, enviromental chart and posters displayed in the school, actions to be implemented during the next schoolyear. The students were very active and really interested in the action. They had a lot of ideas and had very lively and fruitful discussions. They worked in groups, cooperated, shared their ideas and felt really responsible. We hope the implementation of their ideas in the school will meet their enthusiasm and expectations.
They proved they were already aware of enviromental problems and eager to take an active part in the envirommentalbattle.
