Education and shaping attitudes of young people to ecology are very important, because it concern their future life. We would like focus on eco initiation, i.e. shaping habits, ecological reflection in the young age, when the mind of a young people is extremely receptive and flexible. Typically, environmental education provided by schools consists on providing theoretical information. Trough workshops and manual activities we will make the participants “like ecology”, understand its usefulness and see that it can be a pleasure.
AIMS OF THE PROJECT
-spreading eco-patriotism among young people and promote a positive vision of ecology.
-promoting pro-ecological behaviors among young people, which will have a positive impact on the environment and reduce the negative effects of people’s activities
-preset and teach young people which of everyday activities can positively influence the climate
-development of the soft skills of young people useful for ecology like creativity, re-use of older things, communication skills and team work
Second Chance workshops were success
So far two of three workshop has been organised and it was so much fun!
Create your own cleaning product is easy, smelling amazing and it is kind of a relaxion. Students of a high school in Bratislava made their own Air- freshner, washing powder and all purpose cleaner. They were competing who will clean the meeting room after, with their new products. These students learnt what contains all cleaning products and what harm the can cause.
Workshop on how to create ecological cosmetics 🧼
It is easy, fun and great smelling. 🤩 In the middle of March a workshop held in Bratislava brought together 10 girls. We talked about the enviromental problems 🌎 which cosmetic industry create, the toxics that they are using and how harmful it might be for us and for the environment.☠️ It was very succesfull and scented workshop. All participants were happy and excited to try their new cosmetic products at home. 🛀 You should also try it out.
