Hello! We are activists from a small miner’s town Ukrainsk, school # 12. We love our little Motherland and try to develop it.

A significant problem for our town’s residents is the heaps of fallen and cut branches (in the streets and parks). It’s incorrectly dispose of: leave near homes or burn. And this is an environmental threat to the city.

We have found a solution to this problem. Branches are not garbage, but a valuable, environmentally resource. And this is why students of our school are offered to get sawdust by shredding branches using a garden shredder.

We plan to use sawdust:

  • for making decor, which will be sold at fairs;
  • as a furniture filler for classes and corridors. We will do it at the Handicraft lessons, Art lessons;
  • as mulch (fertilizer for wood).

To interest other people and attract to this project, we want to create an eco-studio where we will advertise ideas: take video “how you can use sawdust” (master classes, lifehacks, short films) for your own YouTube channel.

This studio will influence the development of the interests of schoolchildren, their future profession, studying and ecology.

That’s why, we will make our town cleaner and develop the competence of the students.

We have already taken some steps to implement the project:

  • firstly, agreed with the people of the city – don’t take the branches to the garbage dump and don’t burn them but found a dry place for storage;
  • secondly, we created a program for students for the first semester and agreed with the students for help;
  • thirdly, they registered our project on GoF – this is important, because the project cannot live without money;
  • finally: our team is already looking for ideas for videos, lifehacks that help to create fun and useful things from sawdust and recycled materials.

The project is not for a year or two, it’s for a long time. During the first year we will work on product development (60 videos – 60 things), to observe the positive and negative sides of our project. From the second year we will be engaged in processing not only in our school, but also in other schools.

With this project we want to make our town cleaner, to show people of our town what nature gives to us and how we can use it with benefit. Students will discover a different world of television and maybe in the future will choose one of the professions in this area.
In addition, it’s useful work and visual education, where children choose material and what to do. This freedom will allow the development of the creative aspects of students. Check the progress of the project by the number of graduates who have entered the higher education in the field of environmental education, employment training, in the field of television. We will conduct surveys every two months in our town, find rubbed areas. We will monitor the school at the end of the school year and find out how many useful things have been done during the school year. We will compare the terrain before and after the project with photos and video. And most importantly – we will analyze how many reviews of our issues on the YouTube channel, as well as what earnings from sales at fairs we’ll receive.
