The Problem with Plastics

During our work for 2017-2018 we focussed on 'The Problem with Plastics'.  We worked with young people on this topic and started a Plastic Free Waterford Campaign to help reduce the amount of single-use plastic that we go through. In this resource pack you'll find a workshop plan and support materials for a 60 minute workshop designed for 1st to 3rd year CSPE classes. The workshop looks at the Sustainable Development Goals with a specific focus on Goal 13 which calls for urgent action to be taken to combat climate change. The workshop then delves deeper into the ‘The Problem with Plastics’ and looks at actions that young people can take on their own or as part of the school community to decrease the negative impacts that plastic is having on our lives.
