01 Nature Hunt
03 Carbon footprint Survey
04 Guest Speaker
The scavenger hunt organized by three 10th graders for PYP students. Grade 3 students will participate in this hunt to become more aware of their surroundings and explore nature in an engaging and exciting way.
Grade 10 students participate in a debate regarding on-going climate issues. In particular, the topics discussed are: food diets (veganism and vegetarism) and land use and rights of indigenous communities with fossil fuel drilling (The Willow Project).
Carbon Footprint Survey
A carbon footprint measures how much carbon dioxide we produce from our day-to-day activities. Carbon dioxide is a major greenhouse gas that is accumulating in our atmosphere and causing Climate Change. Therefore, a carbon footprint indicates to what degree our actions contribute to climate change.
We can calculate the percentage of carbon dioxide we are producing compared to the target set for carbon dioxide emission reduction to avoid the worst effects of climate change--a 1.5°C increase in global temperature.
A 100% carbon footprint does not increase or decrease the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Less than 100% helps to reduce it--more than 100% adds to the global increase in emissions.
Guest Speaker- Enrico Rivetto
Enrico Rivetto is a farmer from the Langhe. He is the owner of a "home school" elementary school which aims to teach sustainability, the functioning of ecosystems around us and about eco-minded agriculture in the Lange, while still incorporating curriculum topics/subjects. He also manages and owns a biodynamic garden that he tries to incorporate into learning and making his agricultural production (of wine, fruit, vegetables, and cereals) more sustainable.
