Teachers and facilitators guide
If yes, join the CircularCityChallenge contest! This is an effective way for your students to learn about circularity and sustainability and how they can apply them to their own communities.
Teachers and facilitators can choose the format that fits their teaching context, such as independent workshops, cross-subject collaboration, science fairs, project weeks, green weeks, after-school activities, homework, summer schools workshops, or seminars.
- Explain the value and meaning of circularity and sustainability
- Demonstrate situations in their communities (households, schools, neighborhoods, cities) that are problematic in terms of too much linearity in the resources management, i.e., too much waste
- Explain the nature of relationships and different needs of various stakeholders in the circular economy in their communities
- Apply the process of mapping and understanding stakeholders and their relationships for selecting more circular options
- Independently plan and implement a circularity project in their community
- Plan actions while being very precise about the roles and describing the results in a time frame
- Present analysis and proposal to the jury and any other audiences in a well argued manner
Do you want to help your students learn about circularity and sustainability in a fun and engaging way?
You don’t need to do any training to lead the students. You only need enthusiasm, creativity and our resources to guide your students through all six steps of the contest. These resources include a handbook for teachers and facilitators, videos, articles, examples, and tips.
If you have any questions or need any assistance for the contest, please contact the consortium members directly. They will be happy to support you and provide you with guidance and feedback. You can reach them via the contact form.
