Climate Change and Zero Waste: The Green Ant School

The ‘Green Ant School’ is a sustainable education programme that educates children about the environment, climate and waste sorting.


The environmental organisation Dönüsüm Dernegi and our Turkish department, in cooperation with the Kartal Municipality of Istanbul, implemented the programme in kindergartens in the Kartal Atalar district in December 2022.


Students from three classes participated in workshops over four weeks. The project aimed to reach the parents of the children in order to raise environmental awareness both inside and outside the home. During the project, the children collected waste in their homes. It was later collected in recycling bins at the school.


Paper and toys were produced during the programme from the collected waste materials and were exhibited at the school.
