Join Ocean School and GreenLearning for a highly-interactive plastic upcycling workshop!

Ocean School and GreenLearning are hosting a highly-interactive plastic upcycling workshop. Participants will explore how they interact with plastics and take part in a collaborative upcycling workshop using plastics and recyclables from their school/home to find creative design-based solutions for keeping plastic out of the environment. Learners and educators will leave the session with tools and resources for continuing their plastic reuse and reduce journey, as well as a feeling of connection to the collective actions being taken towards combating the Plastic Problem.

Dans cet atelier sur le recyclage du plastique, rejoignez comme invitée Zoie, experte en plastique de l'équipe Trash Team de l'université de Toronto. Lors de cet événement, les participants auront l'occasion d'échanger avec l’invitée, de profiter de son expertise et d'acquérir des connaissances précieuses sur l'impact de la pollution plastique sur l'environnement. Les participants auront également l'occasion de partager les créations de l'événement du 4 avril et d'obtenir un retour direct de notre expert. Les participants repartiront avec une compréhension globale du problème du plastique et des solutions pratiques pour y remédier.
