Change the habits of people through example. It is a community service project. If I see garbage that "someone" throws, I take a picture of it, I pick it up, I throw it where it belongs and I take a picture again. Using the layout application I upload them to a facebook group called: Leave it better that what we found. It's a closed group were I try to encourage people to do the same or at least think twice before throwing waste on the street.
Students trained in Peace Learning Circles will learn mindfulness practices and restorative justice to help their peers solve misunderstanding. In addition, the practice will reduce bullying in our school through the practice of proactive peace.
In my fb group (Bunnyland GR) we daily inform and educate bunny owners about how to care their pets and cover their needs. Last week, we decided to take an action to inform the others about the bunnies because especially on Easter time , shops and breeders promote the bunnies for Easter gifts and usually after the holidays every year, we observe many bunny abandons in the area. So with this action, we will record the shops and illegal breeders and then we will make posters with messages against the exploitation of the bunnies during the Easter period. After, we will post these images to the online pages of the shops and breeders and/or to the local markets and we will inform their customers about the needs of the bunnies as pets. Our goal is to spread the message that bunnies are beings with needs and a part of the family.Not a toy for the holidays. We try to educate people and make them to think and act in favor of animal welfare.
Our project will involve our whole family and we have already started planting / spreading seeds of native flowers. Our project is to attract and help feed birds, bees and butterflies, as we are aware that they are under severe pressure due to their habitats being destroyed due to human interference. We have put in a bird bath, feeders, roosting pockets, a nesting box and we are currently germinating our milkweed flower seeds in the fridge for Monarch butterflies. We will plant and make abundant flowers and herbs, we will especially plant more basil plants as the hummingbirds and bees loved our basil plants last year. We've also planted apple trees and we do need these little beauties to pollinate them. We help feed them and keep them safe and they will help feed us, by pollinating our trees and vegetable and fruit garden. We have sowed multiple trays of seeds for vegetables and flowers and they are currently in a warm laundry room with abundant sunlight as we cannot plant them just yet as it is too cold. Due to the bird feeders we have already in our garden we are getting quite alot of little feathered visitors. We will keep you posted as we move along with our project.

TThis project is related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, focussing on Global Goal 15 (Life on Land). The participating students and teachers (Fantastic Forest Explorers!) will be supporting the Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education, and Conservation charity, helping to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment. It is a cross-curricular CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) project that aims to teach subject content and skills as well as the English language to children of 3rd/4th Primary level (8-9 years old) and is adaptable for all levels of Primary education. It incorporates science, mathematics, drama, music, arts and crafts, cookery and outdoor learning. Students will explore their local forest, discover flora and fauna and the negative impacts that humans can have on woodland environments and seek solutions. We will invite an expert speaker from the Jane Goodall Institute to introduce them to a different type of forest in another part of the world and learn about the plight of the chimpanzees. By the end of the project, the students will understand the importance of the forest and the reasons why we need to look after it for current and future generations. They will be able to demonstrate this, sharing their knowledge and ideas with the local community by performing a theatre sketch of The Gruffalo (by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler).
We will offer community service hours to CHS students who volunteer to help us clean up the beach.
