Students from another high school were introduced to the problem by measuring for one week waste production at their homes. This raised the students’ interest to focus on how to reduce waste in general, and in particular how to reduce waste produced within their school and surrounding the school.
Groups of students did some extra research on their favorite topics. Each group created a poster with the main issue and their solution. These poster presentations were shared with teaching staff and the board of the school. Potential next steps were new waste buckets outside the school and less products with plastics in the school canteen.
