How sustainable is your school?
We agreed to work together on waste management and biodiversity thanks to this project entitled "How sustainable is my school?". We decided to join our efforts to create ecosystems and to reduce the problem of food, paper and energy waste in our schools through hands-on activities made by students. Thanks to this early contact, we communicated and anticipated aspects of this Erasmus+ project.
On the whole, Year-1 learning activities will permit each partner school to get to know one another, to initiate a local audit about waste streams, to implement common hands-on activities about waste prevention with the help of stakeholders during the whole school year and during the student exchange meeting, to participate all together to the European Sustainable Development Week in May 2018.
Year-2 learning activities will be dedicated to the implementation of environmental-related actions. Year-2 will also allow the follow-up of Year-1 audit data collection about food, water and paper consumption in order to compare each school's waste management improvements in terms of cost-saving, energy-efficient, waste-preventive objectives. During the student exchange meeting, participants will for example collaborate in workshops and to the European campaign, "Let's clean up Europe!"
Year-3 will be dedicated to the installation of cost-saving equipment during the whole school year.
