SUSTAINABLE LIVING FESTIVAL February 14th, 2014.
Environment Team Captains’ Speech at Assembly on Monday 17th February, 2014:
On Friday, 14th February, the Year 6 Environment Team went to the Sustainable Living Festival in Federation Square. We first listened to Chris Jordan speak. Chris Jordan is a photographer from Seattle in the U.S.A. He takes data and turns it into photos of waste used over a period of time. He told us that such small things like not buying bottled water can help to save the world. Next we got to do a Mobile Muster workshop, where they told us about all the different parts and how to pull apart a mobile phone by ourselves. There is a container at the Community Recycling Station in the Office where you can place your old mobile phones. Overall, we had a great day learning about how we can make a difference in the world and we got to take home a little veggie seedling as a gift.
