CartaCiclo - Educational workshop on recycling
Waste management is an agenda issue in every part of the world. It is absolutely essential to raise awareness of this situation among young people. Our workshop is a way to come in contact with recycling, its potential through play and creativity. Children and young people learn how paper can be recycled, how important it is to do so, and especially how simple it is. The workshop can be carried out in one day, but a more structured course of several meetings can also be organized, like the one carried out with the Laconi Comprehensive Institute – See the project That’s all we talk about now, recycling collection, recycling, energy conservation, etc etc. (Doing separate waste collection enables us to achieve important results, saving raw materials and consequently valuable resources. Limiting the amount of waste to landfill as much as possible and lowering disposal costs). How and why to do it can be learned through play. With the help of a variety of materials, we can create a pleasing discourse on why recycling is necessary. The trail is suitable for different age groups with different levels of difficulty.

CartaCiclo - Educational workshop on recycling

Educational workshops on recycling are suitable for both preschoolers and older children. Educators adapt the educational workshop to the age and background of the children. Once the paper is shredded and pulp is created, the children make real sheets of recycled paper. Once dry, the sheets become the cover for a booklet that children can take home. The recycling workshop focuses on team play. Children must sort as well as they can in order to meet the challenge! Chronoprogram

Usually, during school trips an entire museum is dedicated to the activities of a single school. Since there are not many dates available we suggest booking well in advance for your school’s day.
