This creative project aims to educate children about the importance and different ways of recycling, inspire them through practical work to adopt the principles of “zero waste” and motivate them through ambassador roles and games to share the knowledge and practices gained through the project with their surroundings, family and friends – indirect participants of the project.
The project consists of three modules, designed for three target groups: lower elementary school classes (students in grades I-IV), upper elementary school classes (students in grades V-VIII) and special classes of the partner primary schools.
Three modules and their aims:
RECYCLE – an interactive educational program based on understanding recycling symbols, different types of waste and recycling methods to raise awareness about the importance of separating and recycling waste in general;
UPCYCLE – hands-on creative workshops of repurposing of objects, materials and textiles to encourage creativity in children and raise awareness of the importance of reducing waste and showcase different ways of reuse and upcycling of waste;
SHARE – ambassadors program involves play and use of digital technologies with the aim of sharing theoretical and applied knowledge for the purpose of project’s sustainability and greater impact on the immediate environment. This module is the link between the first and the second module – the students through ‘missions’ throughout the year complete specific tasks and present them at the end of the project with other outcomes at a public event and exhibition.
All three above mentioned target groups participate in all three modules of the project which are specially designed and structured on the basis of an individual approach, and adapted to the age, interests and abilities of pupils.
In the school year 2021/2022 we organized the total of 30 workshops.
The interactive game "Ambassadors of Ecology" was also developed and is available HERE (in Croatian).
In the school year 2022/2023 we organized the total of 42 workshops.
The publication "Recycle, upcycle, share: ideas for creative eco-workshops for children" was published in printed and online format, available HERE (in Croatian).
