Is the Earth a planet of trash?!

Is the Earth a planet of trash?! it’s a hands-on activity for children from 6-10 years that took place in Lúcio Craveiro da Silva Library on November 24th from 10:00-12:00.

 

What can be considered as trash? Did you know that 1.3 billion tons of trash are produced per year? What is toxic waste and how can we avoid or reduce it? In the European Union alone, each person produces 200 kg of this waste per year! How can science help us? In the European Week of Waste Prevention, let us reflect on these issues and carry out some activities that alert us to a more sustainable way of life. Are you curious? Just show up! And don’t forget: it’s time to detoxify!
