Garbage! The more advanced and richer you are, you produce more of it.

Each of us produces an average of 1.7 kg of waste per day.

It's really a lot of garbage!!

So, maybe we should consider how we can reduce it ...

Our video deals with the consumption of products with unnecessary packaging that fill the school bins and in general.

Hope that the message will pass, and people will prefer to consume products without packaging.

A little respect (Slovakia)

If there was no water, there would be no life. We look for water on other planets in our solar system, but sometimes we don’t appreciate the water that literally flows right under our noses. Kolačanský Creek is one of two water sources of Nová Dubnica. However, both creeks flowing through the city have major problems with pollution and over-use for garden irrigation. Their water levels have had record lows. Will this city lose its only two watercourses in a few years? It’s important to draw attention to this problem!

We created this video to promote the zero-waste lifestyle. By using a waste bin as the focus of the video, we showed how Malta’s waste crisis could be eased by ditching single-use products.

How should burnt oil be thrown away? Can we recycle it? These are the questions that our students asked and researched after noticing the amount of oil that is thrown away. The research involved internet research, vox pops, an online survey, interviews to WasteServ and an interview to the Mayor of the locality. Towards the end of the video the students created a short tutorial on how oil should be disposed of correctly.

Food waste crime report (Northern Ireland)

In this video, two students report on the escalating crime of food wastage that has infiltrated all levels of modern society. The video addresses the problems caused by food wastage economically, environmentally and morally and then focuses on the villainous practices in our local homes, schools and supermarkets that are collectively contributing to the rapidly growing global food waste footprint. The video challenges the viewer to consider whether they are the hero or the villain when it comes to the felony of food wastage! It may make uncomfortable viewing!

Paperland (Greece)

The film was made during the UNESCO project on climate change. Our school is one of the four primary schools in Greece that were chosen for this project. During a three- day workshop in nature we made the film” Paperland”.

The film shows that we do not need to take extreme measures to save the planet. Any small and individual act that we adopt in our everydaylife can make a difference.

Chewing gum is a world-wide problem. We find them in the oceans, in waiting rooms, on roads, and on sidewalks. Gum has even found its way into small cities like Nová Dubnica, not far from Trenčín. Every year there is an accumulation of hundreds of small, sticky, spots. How can this problem be solved?

Energy in water (France)

YRE Competition 2016

This lift in Braga, the oldest in service in the world to use the water balance system, was inaugurated in 1882 and is a project form the Swiss engineer Niklaus Riggenbach.
It connects the upper town to the shrine, up a gap of over a hundred meters high and follows a path parallel to the of the staircase of Bom Jesus. It runs over a ramp, consisting of two independent cabins, connected together by a funicular water system balance.
Each cabin has a deposit, which is full of water at the top level and emptied when at the bottom. The weight difference thus obtained permits to travel. 38 was constructed for transporting people and does not emit CO2 to the atmosphere. 
This transport process is environmentally friendly, promoting job creation, environmental protection, and light energy . That is the reason why this elevator has been around for 133 years! 

Together with solar or wind power solutions, water can transport objects we can imagine in future lifts based on this process: a building, where with the help of solar and wind energy systems, water tanks would be filled, allowing people to walk up and down, without any CO2 production. It is an inexpensive and sustainable solution.
