During May we take our Sustainable Future exhibits to all 30 schools registered on the WCC Eco-Schools programme. We will visit Gansbaai, Stanford, Hermanus, Zwelihle/Mt Pleasant, Hawston and Kleinmond and on average 80 learners from each of 5 schools will visit the exhibit at each venue.
There will be 10 interactive learning stations in the exhibition, each illustrating a sustainability theme. Examples include a working model of the wave energy converter being built at Abagold, what we should and should not put in that clear recycle bag, how to easily convert our food waste into a resource, how to care for wetland and marine habitats, how to conserve our scarce water resources, sustainable energy options for the home and office, and what exactly is the blue drop and green drop that Hermanus does so well.
These road shows will culminate in a huge Sustainable Future Expo at the Green House during July. These road shows and Expo are all part of WCC’s sustainability awareness project funded by the NLDTF – but more about the Expo in another newsletter.
