Thanks to the excellent teachers and project coordinators from each institution, as well as great cooperation with the management of each school and kindergarten, we were able to achieve such amazing results. In the first year of the project, over 1,100 classes were conducted on the closed-loop economy, water management and a range of matters related to renewable energy. Classes also covered biodiversity and action for our Planet. Students completed the Play Green with Us! worksheets, carried out numerous experiments and took part in outdoor activities. These included building birdhouses, planting forests and cleaning up the world. As part of additional initiatives, students planted over 1,600 trees and shrubs.
Various environmental competitions were held in 14 schools. Students were asked to design posters promoting RES. They created eco-creatures and organised eco-tests. The project also included field work, including taking pictures and making videos. There were also two large communal competitions, in Miłoradz (Playing Green in Miłoradz Commune – ESG website (polenergia.pl)) and Nowa Sarzyna Communes (Playing Green in Nowa Sarzyna Commune – ESG website (polenergia.pl)), involving all local educational institutions.
Nature conservation classes were conducted in the area of Kostomłoty and Dębsk Wind Farms. In total, 12 nature conservation classes were organised for over 350 students. The classes were conducted by experts who shared their knowledge and experience with students from local schools. The classes were aimed at raising awareness of the need for biodiversity conservation among the children. The topics, content, methods and games were adjusted to the age of the children, allowing them to get involved and to understand them.
All institutions were invited to take part in the Climate Reading campaign. The initiative consists in donating a certain amount of money to purchase Books for Climate for each school and kindergarten. The aim is to promote the idea of reading, as well as to raise interest in the environment and nature. In the last school year, 18 schools declared their willingness to join the campaign. Another 22 schools are expected to join in the next school year.
Once again, we would like to thank all project coordinators, teachers, headmasters and headmistresses and all students who were so involved in the Play Green with Us! project for their massive commitment to a greener tomorrow!
TOGETHER WE CAN DO ANYTHING!
