The Problem

We wish the residents of our neighbourhood ( Maroussi) to realise the harm of wood smoke from fireplaces and decide to take measures in order to reduce it

Our Plan

We are a team of eight primary school students from the private school "Elliniki Paedia". We are working on a power point which we are going to present to the students of the public school of our neighbourhood. The content will be the harmful effects of the wood smoke of fireplaces on the atmosphere and our health. We aim at informing students and motivate them to discuss about this problem with their parents. Moreover, we are going to inform them about the proper ways of using fireplaces that will not pollute our environment. We will print leaflets with instructions about the proper use of fireplaces which we will give to the students to take home. Additionally we are going to distribute these leaflets to residents mainly to local shops and places many residents visit.
