As a Globeducate school, Mougins School aims to meet the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and prepare each student to become a global citizen who can shape the world. Therefore, on the occasion of Globeducate Eco-Week & Global Recycling Day, our students at Mougins School will be organising a 'Yellow Day' on 16 March, to raise awareness of the importance of recycling. Mougins School sees life in yellow! Yellow as a reference for the French recyclable waste bin.
Why do we celebrate Yellow Day?
According to the ADEME (French environment and energy management agency) each inhabitant of France produces 354 kg of waste per year and in the Alpes-Maritimes each inhabitant recycles only 55.3 kg per year. We often don't recycle because we lack information or find it inconvenient. We should recycle more! How can we improve? The secret is environmental awareness and education!
What is going to happen?
On March 16th, we invite everyone to wear yellow! You might even win a special prize for the most original or the most eco-friendly outfit.
During the third period for Secondary and sixth period for Primary, several fun activities will take place: card competition, chess games, coconut shire, guess the number, musical chairs, origami, steeplechase, tug of war, yellow bin basketball free throw, yellow container decoration, yellow face makeup, yellow fancy dress, yellow Zumba, and filming of the 3 Rs (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle) in the yard.
As we already mentioned in our 7 days 7 changes campaign, step by step our school is implementing projects related to the environment and there is no better way to learn than to recycle while playing.
