October 2023 – Activities – Articles and Posters

Portuguese students organised Autumn Swap Meet on October 12th 2023. Students and teachers exchanged their unwanted possessions from books and school supplies to clothes, accessories and foodstuff. What was left was donated to the local charity and food bank.
By involving students and their families we drew their attention to the need to change behaviours by reducing consumption and reusing items / materials for the sake of our planet and ourselves. Habits must definitely be changed! 8th graders were committed, conscious and joyful, demonstrating young people’s initiative and activism in promoting and defending the principles that their generation considers relevant for the sustainability of the planet and humankind. Teachers believe it’s very important to transfer knowledge and commitment to their students. We are hopeful that we are moving towards living plastic-free, reducing our food waste, and countering our carbon footprint.
