Recycling and Waste: Workshop 3

Join the Change Agents to find out what we put in our recycling bins and the world of possibilities from this process. Discover the terrific transformations made possible by recycling and design a colourful recycle guide for your home.

Recycling is the magical process of turning something old and used into something bright and new. It’s through recycling that an old tin can could end up whizzing around a race track, and it’s how an empty juice carton could keep your home dry from the rain. There are many possibilities when we recycle properly! Find out what does and what does not go into your recycling bin, as we follow the recycling journey.

Local Environment: Workshop 1

ecoACTIVE will help you explore your local environment in a new way with our local workshops!

Our workshop will help you learn about different people, places and creatures that form part of where you live.

As a Hackney Change Agent, you'll need to use your eyes as a camera to capture your own local environment snapshot. You'll need to think about what it's like where you live and go to school, and what it means to make something change. You'll create a unique snapshot and your notes will be shared with the Council. Make sure you send us your work (#ecoMissionComplete) so Hackney can make changes for the better where you live!

Watch your first local environment mission video and find out what to do.

Local Environment: Workshop 2

Join ecoACTIVE and learn about the life of litter. Get crafty and design your very own superhero to complete this week's mission!  

Litter means rubbish such as paper, cans, and bottles left lying in an open or public place. It can come from different places, and different people. For instance, it may be put there on purpose by people throwing things out of their car windows, or pedestrians dropping litter on the street. Or maybe it's been dropped by accident by people on picnics.

Litter can be harmful to people, animals and the natural environment, as it can threaten their existence and evolution. On top of that, it doesn't make places look very nice.

You can help make a difference. See the video for this week's activity:
