Children's Pledges of Hope for World Environment Day
Creative Recycling Centre joined forces with Conservation Volunteers Australia and Tangaroa Blue to create a project that would connect with our young people and provide a public platform to acknowledge their ideas, voices and pledges.
Our team provided a space for students to identify and problem solve how we can all engage to reuse, reduce and recycle in order to lessen the impact we have on our environment, including our waterways and reef. The hands on workshops involved over 1,000 local primary school students from years 2 to 6.
Each child had the opportunity to create a personal pledge which they embedded on a recycled fabric flag. The flags were proudly displayed at EcoFest 2019 at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens, where the project was opened to the public to create their personal pledges.
Thank you to our project partners Conservation Volunteers Australia and Tangaroa Blue. This project was Kindly Funded by Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership.
