In all the workshops we have carried out so far, the children were absolutely fantastic, excited, and extremely interested in ways to help!
You can help them too to be the change by sponsoring our schools program; or if you are interested in having this program take place at your children's school, get in touch with us: email@example.com
In October 2018, Cleanwave launched its educational schools program 'Plastics Fora' in public and private schools.
The implementation of these school workshops is fundamental in creating change, as this younger generation is the first that will grow up with the problem of plastics and will be responsible for finding solutions in the future. Their awareness is essencial to change our consumption behaviours and establish the foundations of a well informed society.
Using a beautifully illustrated children's story book, we have established a three-part children's workshop that teaches children about plastic, its impact and how they are the solution for the future.
The workshop includes: open discussion introduction, followed by a storytelling narrative. Thereafter an audio-visual screening that sets the scene for an interactive game and role-play exercise, which stimulates the emotional and sensory experience of plastic, its impact on the environment and animals, and how each child can be responsible for his/her own actions. The workshop closes with giving the children time to reflect and draw a picture of what they have learned, or give expression to anything that has impacted them. Each child is given a story book as a gift to take home, to share the message with their siblings, parents and friends.
Duration is about 60-90 minutes. The drawings will be integrated into an exhibition at the end of the school year.
We offer a modified 20 minute screening of the film "Out of Plastic" to secondary students, followed by an informative discussion around plastic.
Duration is about 60 minutes.
