In Beaumarchais middle school in Meaux city, the students built a composter themselves. After finishing it, some of them were dedicated to training the canteen staff, other students and teachers to use it on a daily basis.

Moreover, they have edited a school newspaper on sustainable development issues and they have spread it among their families in order to share good practises. This middle school is a “REP” school (high priority educational network). The Litter Less Campaign and the funds allocated to the Community Action Days contribute to empower the students and to give them a concrete responsibility in their school environment - they can be artisans, reporters, or a communications specialists.
