Students making their own paper
First grade (age 12-13) students from 6th secondary school of Drama participated in a workshop about recycling organized by the Environmental Institution of Filippoi. During the workshop students were informed about the problem of waste, about ways of recycling, composting and reusing, and they pondered on how they could reduce waste. Directed from the trainers of the Environmental Institution, students created their own recycled paper. This activity was not only didactic for students, as they learned the process of paper recycling through hands-on experience, but it was also convivial, as you can watch in the video. What is more important, students sensitized on the issue and value of recycling. The paper recycling activity is easy to handle from most middle school students; as you can see in the video only common resources and hardware are required, while the duration of the whole process takes no more than 15 minutes.
