This activity is focused on the income generating efforts to be introduced in the project ‘Sanganigwa Children's Home’ supported by JGI-Italia. IVA students are involved in the design and manufacture of three clothes made entirely out of recycled materials. The production of these clothes is intended to possibly contribute to the advancement and financial autonomy of the Sanganigwa orphanage
The aim of the project is to raise public awareness of the relationship among man, environment and animals. We foster knowledge of the phenomenon of re-wilding and of the wild species that are repopulating our Apennines. The final aim is to raise appreciation of the sustainable lifestyles of rural populations and wildlife that share our same environment.
The goal of the project "The Reappearance of the Hermit Ibis" was to spread among students the knowledge about the Hermit Ibis and to inform people of the ongoing efforts to reintroduce this endangered species, with the support of also the European Union. We took the opportunity to acquaint people also with illegal hunting which is the greatest threat to this bird. The end result of the whole project was the production by the students of a CD on this subject.
The project aims at promoting among students some assessment capacity on passive communication associated to commercials and to start a critical examination of advertisments. The goal is to enable critical judgement in relation to the field of communication through observation and the consequential analysis of advertising spots.
This project aims at increasing among students the knowledge about waste differentiation and environmental communication. Presentation of related scientific studies will cover in particular the biodegradability of materials and packaging adequacy of labeling formulas for recycling leading to public education in responsible consumption and adoption of an eco-sustainable behavior.
Cleanup days; Educate ourselves about the problem and solutions; Provide education at local Earth Day events; Sponsor a local student poster contest to promote awareness of decreasing litter/proper disposal of trash; Print t-shirts promoting Clean Lakewood Parks
We will use Philosophy for Children and Critical Thinking Skills to explore the causes of food poverty. We will speak to farmers and examined statistics looking at trends over time. We will examine our findings and see what action we can take locally in both school to address the problem.
We will raise money to create reservations where these wild mustangs can be free. Out of starveation. Out of drought.
We will set up clothes bins in each corridor, towards the end of the year when people are moving out. We will donate the good quality clothes, and recycling the damaged ones.
We are aiming to give residents at college the option to recycling. We are allowing people to do this on an opt-in basis - as in the past the college has had trouble with recycling bin contamination. We will supply groups of people with a bin, and they will take responsibility for emptying it, and splitting up the different recyclables appropriately. Hopefully by making students take responsibility for this themselves, they will encourage others to respect the bins and use them appropriately. Overall, this will hopefully help to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill from the college.
