Plastic Plastic...

From supermarket bags to CDs, man-made waste has contaminated the entire globe


Evaluation of the Meeting

Click to learn how everything went...


We can say that the evaluation is positive since all the activities that were programmed, were done and students and teachers took active part in them.
Most of the students enjoyed the meeting and they say that they have learnt how to help the environment. However, some students would have preferred to have more activities in the afternoon, since they consider they have spent too much time with their host families.

We visited Valdemingómez landfill, although it's a smelly and awful place it made us realise that rubbish is a big issue and we have to be aware of it.

Then we visit Madrid by bus, some of the students almost died frozen. They had time for shopping in the city center
