environmental responsibility making learning fun!As announced in the last edition, our apprentices went on the very first environmental scavenger hunt and were extremely enthusiastic. The aim of the event was to promote responsibility for present and future environmental challenges in a playful manner. Here is the no-holds-barred experience report from our apprentices:
The very first environmental scavenger hunt for our apprentices tool place on 23 September. At 9 a.m., we started the day at the Iller river in Bellenberg. The scavenger hunt was split into four stations.
The first station focused on the topic of environmental pollution at the expense of the general public, e.g. slash-and-burn agriculture in virgin forests. This takes away the habitat of wild animals and pollutes our air. At the end of the station there were a few questions for us to show off our knowledge.
Station 2 was dedicated to the topic of greenwashing. Many companies claim to be environmentally friendly even though they most definitely aren't, such as H&M, McDonald's and Ferrero (Kinder Bueno)... We allocated the various problems on a clothesline, and had a long discussion regarding why we continue to shop at these companies despite these issues.
Station 3 related to the German Renewable Energy Sources Act. We received some information and then had to match the correct specialist terms to the questions at the end of the station.
The real highlight was station 4! The final station of the environmental scavenger hunt took the form of a game of "Taboo". We got into teams of 2 to play the guessing game, which was accompanied by a whole lot of laughter.
At the end of the scavenger hunt it was time for a picnic. We each brought along a few snacks and some drinks. To sum up the scavenger hunt: "We're looking forward to part 2 of the scavenger hunt and are already excited to see what's in store!"
