In Wales, Lewis School sent out its Year Seven pupils to litter pick a local park and woodland and to investigate the amount of plastic litter! They were shocked by what they found, but are using it as inspiration for their YRE work.
The Innovate Project in Caerphilly caters for pupils excluded from mainstream education. For their YRE work, all the learners looked at
reducing plastic waste, with a particular focus on raising awareness about the amount of plastic waste at Christmas. As part of their work, they decided to run a Christmas Eco Action Day where all learners showcased what they had done to raise awareness about the issue of Christmas plastic waste! Although not open to anyone outside of the school (due to COVID-19) they involved everyone at the school and shared what they had been doing via Twitter.
