The protagonists of the innovation of REVIME are the youngsters. They
hold the key in changing the social context in which they live by understanding
basic concepts and rules in order to respect the environment and safeguard
their surrounding country. We created the international competition in
order to raise awareness in 45 primary and secondary school classes which
were found within the pilot area in each city involved in the project.
The theme of the project was named "the island you want!". The aim
was to rediscover the island as an eco-friendly environment, which needs
to be protected and respected, starting with the recycling scheme which
would have a positive outcome.
The recreational and educational program had the following items: ecological awareness, environmental awareness, respect for the environment, understanding waste, recycling process and the advantages that recycling will have on the environment.
In order to support the formative programme, digital, visual and paper material were placed in a fun box which was then given to each class. In order to compete in the competition, the students presented their different work to the panel (pictures, sculptures, models) and the best three were presented with a prize during promotional events in each city. Due to the success of the formative programme, we created an online simplified version where all the materials and educational games can be downloaded and the course can be completed by anyone interested in the topic.
