3. THE DOS MANOS SCHOOL PROGRAMME
Save The Med’s Dos Manos School Programme is open for sign ups starting next week!
Sign your school up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Last year, we were fully booked so make sure to get in touch early to secure availability for your school!
The Dos Manos Schools Programme, offered free of charge to schools in Majorca, is a cornerstone of Save The Med’s education and outreach programmes. It tackles the problems of plastic pollution at the source through education, community involvement, science based action and innovative solutions.
The programme consists of three interconnected sessions that bring the students on a journey through plastic pollution to find positive solutions. A one-section junior version is available for students aged 14 and below.
During section one students are introduced to the origin and problems of plastic pollution and our throw-away culture through a combination of storytelling, presentations, multimedia and group discussions.
During section two the students engage in citizen science by conducting a beach clean and plastic pollution survey. To date students have found, categorised and removed over 180.000 plastic objects from beaches all around the island. Their results are added to STM’s data base and contribute to an increased understanding of plastic pollution in Majorca, which in turn enables us to develop targeted awareness campaigns and possible solutions to local and global problems.
During section three students analyse their results, draw conclusions about the most commonly found plastic items in their local environment and use their gained knowledge to develop and present ideas that could help raise awareness and reduce plastic pollution. Together we are achieving a reduction of plastic waste generation while helping to shape an environmentally conscious and pro-active future generation.
