This is the guide for our eco league, which is an eco game. It’s a competition between the classes in school. Every week a teacher controls all the classes in school. Every class gets plus points for certain environment friendly behavior patterns. The class with the most points is the winner – class.
it should create environmental conciousness
it should motivate the students to save energy, separate the waste, keep their classes tidy , …
duration: heating period > october - april
at the end of every month the winner gets a price and a certificate from the headmaster
the prices are the popular „environment – monster“ and fair trade chocolate bars for every student
Winner classes of the year
in May: award ceremony
3 winner classes get prize money and a certificate
usually the 1st and the 2nd class, the 7th and the 8th class are the most motivated ones
generally the students from 13 – 15 are less ecology – minded (at least in school)
It‘s very hard to make the students separate the waste
another problem is the packaging paper
• the desks should be coverd with it to protect them
• the students damage it and consume to much of it > untidy classes
• the students are tempted to write and draw on it to much
• consequence: we‘ll not use it any more!
Even though there are problems, we consider the eco league as a good sustainability indicator and a good instrument for the environment education!
The students like the eco league!
