Blast the Plast!

Who we are:

The Erasmus+ project “Blast the Plast” is a project involving three partner schools from Germany (Alemannenschule Wutöschingen), Iceland (Sjálandsskóli Gardabear) and Sweden (Tunaholmsskolan Mariestad) with students from lower secondary level. Civic engagement and responsible citizenship are the main priorities of this project with the reduction of single use plastic being the major aim of the 2018 European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy of the European Commission. In addition, students have to be made aware that it is essential and crucial to work together globally to eliminate plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on people and the environment and thereby preserve our resources. As a result of the project, the link between plastic pollution and climate change should become more apparent to our future generation as well as the individual contribution we can make.

What we do:

Our work includes different fields:

> Science Projects – where  we find out more about the nature of plastic and how its affecting our lives and our planet.

> DIYs – where we take existing plastic waste, and make it into something new, exciting and most importantly substainable.

> Podcasts – where we learn more about plastic ourselves and make an effort to educate the people around us and all over the world

And we do a whole lot more!
