Green Calgary: Waste in our World

Waste in our World offers children the chance to work cooperatively build a model landfill and use it to look at ways to divert waste and make our landfills safer for the environment. This is an inquiry-based opportunity that fully engages participants in hands-on learning and incorporates several cross-curricular competencies. This workshop ends with a discussion of ways to reduce waste, and challenges students to make a waste reduction pledge!

Program Components
  • Activities are designed to fully engage participants in an experiential, hands-on manner. The program is inquiry based, as students investigate a practical environmental issue and develop possible solutions themselves.
  • By enhancing their awareness of issues surrounding waste disposal, students will have the opportunity to identify how they can make a difference by improving their own practices related to reducing, reusing, recycling and composting.
  • The program helps relate the science curriculum to local issues students can relate to and addresses many other learner expectations and skills.
