Environmental Workshops in Schools

The problems facing our environment are one of the most pressing issues facing modern society. It is vital that industries like construction, which have the potential to cause pollution, be aware of their environmental impact. The younger generation must also be educated about the environment so they are aware of their own impact.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • The site have added an environmental workshop to their schools engagement presentations, in addition to an existing session on site safety.
  • The workshop is a learning guide for schoolchildren and provides information for teachers and the company ambassadors who run the workshops.
  • The children’s learning guide is separated into three zones:
    – The World Zone looks at gas as a fossil fuel and covers gas safety and renewable energy sources
    – The Community Zone looks at issues like saving water and recycling paper and includes a community quiz
    – My Zone asks the children to consider their own carbon footprint and what more they could be doing to help the environment

By running these workshops, the site helps promote environmental awareness in the younger generation and shows how construction is addressing these issues, thereby improving the image of the industry.
