Waste Hero follow-up activity by Saška
In early November, our participant Alexandra from the WASTE HERO project initiated a follow-up activity for the project. The activity’s primary purpose was to spread information about the importance of environmental actions. Alexandra contacted a professor in her school who was highly interested in the ecological topic. Together they found a lesson in which they could take class II.OA (around 12-13 years old) cleans the surrounding area outside the school. During a 45-minute activity, the classmates and Alexandra collected trash around their school.
They were also discussing the following questions:
Do you think that it’s important to take care of our earth?
A collective yes
Do you know how bad the current environmental situation is?
The participants mentioned global warming, rising sea levels, climate change, water and air pollution, and a lack of recycling.
Are you and your family doing something at home that could help our ecological crisis?
1: Yes, we’re collecting plastic bottles and separate trash for further recycling
2: Yes, we’re saving water during showering
3: We have compost garbage at my house
Has this activity inspired you to initiate something at home for those who aren't doing anything?
Would you try this activity again?
1: Yes, around my area at home
2: No, I’m not too fond of dirty fingers
