Target audience

TRANSFORM-CE, an Interreg North-West Europe funded project, is pleased to offer educational programmes for primary and secondary schools to learn about the collection, treatment and recycling of plastic waste.

The lesson plans consist of classroom lessons for primary school children aged 10-12 years and secondary school children aged 12-14 years. They also include interactive assignments, visual materials on the plastic recycling process, and a teacher’s manual. Depending on the location of the schools, additional activities such as visits to relevant companies can be envisaged.

Secondary school pupils can also design an item made from single-use plastics. The project places special emphasis on single-use plastics and how they can be turned into new products as part of the circular economy.

The educational packages are available here in three languages: English, German and Dutch.
