The main idea of this project is to explain to our students the relation between composting and
We want to raise awareness of the students, their parents and the local community about the
importance of preservation of the environment and explain what composting is.
Students will actively participate in compost production in the school during the school year. We
believe that in that way students will understand the process of composting and gain knowledge
useful for their future life.
September - October: School presentation and setting a composter in the schoolyard.
November - March: Organizing a professional lecture with an external associate or visiting an ecological
association in the region where we live. Students will explore the subject of composting and create posters
explaining in a simple and easily understandable way what composting is, why it is good to produce
compost, how to make compost, what goes and what does not go in the compost.
April: Marking the Earth Day by creating presentations, posters, games or other educational materials
about the relation between composting and environmental protection.
During the school year students are going to work on the compost. At the end of the project, the compost is
going to be added to the plants in the schoolyard.
June: The final presentation and the evaluation.
