Green Up Your Act Education teaches sustainability through school eco workshops which use a balance of discussion, practical activities and out of class learning. They make children aware of their carbon footprint through the subjects of food, waste, recycling, energy production and pollution. By doing this they can see the importance of their impact on their own community and hopefully learn to protect their environment. Many areas of the curriculum are covered, particularly science, geography and citizenship.
TH!NK is a leading provider of social enterprise days for education. TH!NK enterprise days set students the task of developing and presenting a ‘green’ business plan around the sustainable use and safe disposal of electronic products. The eco workshop days are typically funded via your Government Enterprise fund, but TH!NK now offers the ability to recycle any unwanted electronic equipment your school may have to help fund the days.
