“Composting” for elementary school pupils
The Association Sunce started with the implementation of the educational program “Composting” in the school year 2014/2015 in cooperation with 4 elementary schools in the Split-Dalmatia County.
The program will be implemented through the first half of this school year in the elementary schools “Mejaši“, “Pujanke“, “Žrnovnica” and “Trilj“, and the program is implemented by the educator Margita Radman, educators associates Marija Nazlić and Jakša Božanić, Dada Lerotić as an external associate of the Association, and in co-operation with teachers as program managers in schools. Educational program “Composting” consists of 6 workshops for students, a workshop for teachers and a closing party at the school for all participants.
One of the aims of the educational program is to incorporate permanently, into the curriculum of elementary schools, the program of composting in the involved schools. In this way, schools will simultaneously contribute to educating students and creating a sustainable world.
The Educational Program “Composting” is being implemented as one of the activities of the “Participate in Sustainable Development” project, which started in May 2013 and lasts until April 2015. Partner of the Sunce Association is a German organization Deutsche Gesellschaft für Umwelterziehung (DGU), and the donor is the German foundation Deutschen Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU). In the school year 2013/2014. the project is co-financed by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport. Also, implementation of the “Composting” education program in the school year 2014/2015. is also supported by the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund.
