Secondary school students can decide how to transform their schools with Escoles Sostenibles..

Conèixer el projecte Tinguem Cura del Planeta, un procés que ofereix un marc de treball perquè l'alumnat de secundària decideixi les accions que transformen el centre i l'entorn. La proposta permet dotar d’eines per diagnosticar l’estat del centre, planificar les accions que volem dur a terme per transformar-lo i dur-les a terme, implicar tota la comunitat educativa i comunicar els resultats...

Aquest procés és simultani a escala mundial amb altres centres i, per tant, es realitzen trobades d'intercanvi entre joves a escala catalana, estatal, europea i internacional. Aquestes conferències són un punt rellevant de motivació per a l'alumnat i de millora de la qualitat de les propostes.

Per tal de facilitar el seguiment del procés, s'ha establert una proposta dels passos que cal seguir, en la qual es detallen un seguit d'objectius i fites que s'han d'aconseguir per a cadascun dels tres cursos. Podeu trobar més informació aquí. També disposeu del vídeo resum del procés.

Eco News...

This week we found some information about ghost nets - nets

that are used for fishing in an illegal way. Sometimes when you fish with a giant net it may break

and that net will end in the ocean under the sea and some animals get trapped in it and die,

normally these are animals close to extinction.

So if you want to help, try to not to buy cans of tuna that don't show how they catch the fish

because that means that they use a ghost net, illegally.

If you want to know more information and which animals get stuck with those nets, look at this

video and you will find out !!!!

Enviro news!

This week we have chosen a piece of good news and a piece of bad news. 

The bad news happened in Madrid. Madrid´s city council has been thinking about just letting 50% of the cars of the city into the city center, this is happening because the Spanish capital is struggling with the high levels of air pollution.
The council thought that they would let in cars that finish with even numbers on their number plates on even days and the cars that finish with odd number plates would be allowed in on odd days.

Far away in San Fransisco the U.S city has required that certain new buildings have to be built with a green roof, this means that there will be plants on the roofline. 
This new law will be started in January and new buildings will have to incorporate 15 - 30% of roof space with solar panels, green roofs or a blend of both.
