The educational programme about waste consists of an activity guide, a student book and a game.

It focusses on practical activities around reducing, re-using and recycling waste.

Activity Guide

The activity guide contains 31 activities. The teacher has the autonomy to determine which activities suit his/her students best, which subjects he/she wishes to focus on and how much time he/she spends on these. The teacher has the choice of three activity types:

Awareness activities: these make the children aware of what waste is and of the fact that waste can have value and can be re-used or recycled.

Thinking activities: these stimulate children to brainstorm about waste issues and to come up with solutions in a structured way. 'Mind mapping' is one of the methods used.

Doing activities: these are all about practical actions like tidying up the school playground or a park, recycling paper, making compost or planting seeds.

 

Student Book

The student book teaches the children how they can use less plastic, glass and paper, how they can re-use these materials and what they can do with green waste. They learn how a polluted city can be turned into a clean city without polluted air, water and soil.

 

Game

While playing the game, the content of our programme is repeated once more, so the children can internalise the material. The children learn through play with other children about which behaviour is sustainable and which behaviour is not.

 

Made-to-meassure

So far, our programme is available in English, Arabic and Bahasa Indonesia. The acitivities and the illustrations of the educational programme about waste can be customised so it matches the child's living environment.
