GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership recently hosted 14 girls aged 10–13 from the Women’s Tec Summer Scheme GIRLTEC Academy to raise awareness of environmental considerations in construction projects.
The workshop formed part of a practical visit to the GBHP Royal Victoria Hospital site to encourage female pupils to consider future careers in construction. The visit included talks and hands on activities from female staff working in environmental management.
The girls learned about careers in environmental management and bio-diversity issues on working sites. The visit also showcased important lessons from the Scheme’s ‘Spotlight on… plastics and packaging’ campaign by highlighting practices including how the site has minimised plastic packaging on pallet deliveries and has made the switch to water bottles to reduce the use of plastic bottles.
The girls then had the opportunity to put the single-use plastic bottles to good use by turning them into functional bird feeders.
