Children often feel a huge sense of responsibility for animals and nature and are keen to do something to help. That is why the Plastic Soup Foundation gives guest lessons at primary schools throughout the Netherlands, in which school children of all ages learn about plastic soup. This is how we increase awareness in the youngest children.
As soon as they reach secondary school, their perception changes and they are more concerned about their ‘image’. It is cool to drop litter on the street without thinking about the consequences. The Plastic Soup Foundation wants to change this attitude and make sure teenagers are more aware about the environment and know about the consequences of dropping litter. They will act as role models for later generations.
At the moment we only provide guest lectures around schools in the Netherlands, but we are re-shaping our education program, so stay tuned for exciting updates!
