Embassy Sydney is Going Green

Embassy Sydney Going Green

As part of our Going Green initiative our centres are doing their part to become greener and help our environment. Embassy Sydney is Going Green and have really taken this on board with a number of initiatives including a presentation evening and a beach clean-up.

Embassy Sydney evening students held a ‘Going Green’ Pecha Kucha presentation and pizza night. A Pecha Kucha is a unique presentation style where 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. This format is designed to keep presentations fast-paced and engaging.

All of the students gave really interesting and informative presentations about sustainability.

We all learnt from each other about how each country recycles and reuses its resources, sustainability initiatives exist in each other’s’ home countries, and what ideas and insights our students have to help save the planet.

• Did you know that Brazil recycles 17.5% of its plastic bottles and some creative designers use PET bottles to make clothes, jewellery, sports equipment and artwork?
• Colombia is the first Latin American country to introduce an e-waste policy.
• Recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if it was made from raw materials.
• Recycling is a part of waste disposal hierarchy – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
After the presentations students enjoyed a pizza delivery.

Embassy Sydney day students also participated in a beach clean-up – doing their bit to keep Sydney beaches clean! 50 of our day students joined Alphonso and Mark at Coogee beach for a beach clean-up day, and BBQ. They picked litter, bottles, cans, and showed their pride in their local environment. This hard work was rewarded with a lovely barbecue lunch.

Thank you to everyone who made both of these events such a great success! A huge thanks to all of the students who participate and to teachers Mark, Alphonso, Clare, and Irene for organising it and pulling the whole Embassy Going Green team together.
