Do your students need inspiration, want to get their hands dirty or don some high vis gear? We can share the message of waste minimisation and sustainability through a variety of hands on experiences for your students in our Member Council area*.
High School Earth Carers Course
We can coordinate a tailor made course for high school students. The course runs for four to five sessions and can include a bin audit, composting/worm farming, movie screenings, make your own beeswax sandwich wrap and DIY lip balm! Students have weekly challenges in between sessions like op shopping or cooking a plastic free meal. We can run the course during or after school. One student said ‘Thank you so much for this great experience and opening our eyes to the issue of waste. I have thoroughly enjoyed it.’
