AWA's Learning Programme for 2017 launched in March with the start of our Spring Workshops Season.
Our Spring Season Workshops are inspired by the Earth Charter, a universal expression of ethical principles to foster a more sustainable future. As part of our learning programme these workshops will be the first in a series which will introduce students aged 5 -11 to key Ecoliteracy concepts through placed based learning adventures. AWA is delighted to be partnering with Isle of Gigha Primary School to facilitate the start of this new workshop series.
Our first workshop introduced the process of decomposition to students through a costal Litter Hunt and a group drawing session. The second half of this workshop explored plastics in the marine environment through global and local case studies and the creation of collage works by students.
Our Systems Thinking Workshop centred around a coastal expedition where students identified and gathered living things. Group drawings at our beach lab introduced the concept of ecosystems and gave the opportunity for students to express and explore the relationships between living things, their environment and human beings. A huge thank you to Amrutha Krishna R, Annabelle Action-Bond, Victor Okechukwu from Earth Charter International's Ethics, Leadership and Sustainability Programme 2017 and Sarah Dobson from Earth Charter International for their input and support for this workshop.
