Ekoskola committee members suggest ways on how to reduce litter. The students together with their link teachers went to Ramla Bay, one of the beautiful spots in Gozo, and filmed a short video.
The EkoSkola Committee at Gozo College Middle School is taking part in the EU funded project We Eat Responsibly, the Community Link project by WasteServ and the LEAF programme. The action plan of the school focuses on responsible food consumption, waste reduction and appreciation of the outdoors. Taking a whole school approach, students learnt about edible wild plants, went foraging and cooked various recipes using foraged leaves to reach the aims of the action plan. A recipe book making use of wild plants like nettle, borage, fennel and sea beet was produced. The aim of the recipe book is to reach out to more people to raise awareness about new ingredients which are frequently considered as waste.
