WE USE ART IN OUR WORKSHOPS TO ENGAGE THE CHILDREN AND TEACH ABOUT THE DANGER OF SINGLE-USE PLASTIC AND HOW TO PROPERLY DISPOSE OF IT.
MUDFISH NO PLASTIC WORKSHOPS
The MUDFISH NO PLASTIC Project has 3 types of workshops. We divide the workshops based on the age of the participants.
Each workshop involves a maximum of 25 participants in order to be able to provide more effective individualized instruction.
Each workshop has its own specific goals to initially present an understanding of the nature of the problem followed by workshops that further instruct and reinforce the importance of not using single-use plastic and of disposing of waste in a responsible way.
After the workshops have been run, MUDFISH NO PLASTIC asks the local Facilitator on a regular basis about the progress being made in the school or villages in reducing the use of single-use plastics and of proper recycling. We also do follow up workshops to reinforce the messages again why we are coming to them in the first place.
