Expected Results:
Participants will understand the importance of a clean environment for a better and carefree life for all living beings.
Overview of Activity
This activity encourages participants to learn and become familiar with waste separation and recycling, what it means for our environment, planet and life. It also encourages participants to take action, i.e. through planting the individual learns about the importance of taking care of plants and through picking up waste learns about the importance of a clean environment.
Description of Activity
Participants and the coordinator walk around their home area. They take litter bags and gloves with them. During the walk, they pick up the rubbish and separate it properly (pembalage separately, paper and cardboard separately, glass separately). During the walk, discuss with the participants the differences between separation and recycling. When the walk is finished and the surroundings are cleaned, the waste is separated properly.
A discussion on Clean Environment in relation to our lives follows - we discuss why it is important to keep the environment clean, what it means for nature, animals and people, how it affects our present and future, etc.
We touch on reforestation and planting plants.
Starting from this, we invite the participants to create pots together in which to plant a chosen plant.
At the end of the activity, we reiterate the importance of sowing and reforestation, give guidance on how to care for the plant, and conclude that our care for the plant is also reflected in our care for the wider environment in which we live.
