It seems fitting on International Mother Earth Day to be looking ahead to World Environment Day on 5th June too.
The theme for 2018 is Beat Plastic Pollution. You can check it out here http://worldenvironmentday.global/
I’d like to think that in less than 12 years the themes have a radically different and joyful focus because we have solved the problem.
Ask your kids and youth what they’d like the theme to be for World Environment Day 2030. Get them to make that a long-term goal.
In the meantime, let’s build your kids’ resilience and wellbeing by empowering them as the eco-social innovators now.
Which really means getting them involved in sustainability now by playing with ideas…it’s a level playing field for every child’s creativity and the pathway to action.
Start by by triggering their imagination and engagement with this game.
Plastic Free SuperMarket
I used this game with my amazing students from Lemania-Verbier International School, as part of my Agents of Change Programme activities. We explored, imagined and then walked over the road into the local Coop to look around the shelves and see how much single-use plastic was around.
They were stunned and what came next were all the questions about how to solve the problem…which sets things up very nicely for playing with ideas.
More on that next time!
Think about doing the learn to move mountains® hub training so that you set up an innovation hub for engaging all of the kids and youth in your community. You can read more on that here.
