Virtual camp Environmentally Aware - Learn from home
Description: SEEDS camp leaders will be creating opportunities for you to focus on different current environmental and sustainability issues through a selection of workshops and activities online. One of our aims is to help create more environmentally aware consumers & travellers. During this camp participants can share their love for (and learn more about) global & local environmental topics such as: climate change, waste management, sustainable solutions & other environmental topics. There will be two to three different sessions each day. Participants are also encouraged to join the weekly challenge that will be published on the SEEDS Instagram channel.
Type of Work: DIY Selfcare Products Workshop - Every other day, for one hour we will teach you how to DIY your own natural cosmetic and personal hygiene products with ingredients that you can probably find at home! Conscious Consumerism Workshop - Every other day, we will have one hour workshops where we will address three areas in our daily lives where we can take measures to reduce our environmental footprint. Participants will work in teams and present their ideas to the group. Over the course of the camp, each participant is encouraged to try at least one of the ideas at home and share their new habit with the group. At the same time, all will research the environmental policies of a preferred brand, and try to look for more sustainable alternatives, sharing their findings with the others.
Study Theme: Plant-based Cooking & Baking Classes - These classes will provide you with an insight into plant based diet and food, with recipes, and tips and tricks to cook and bake. Fun Environmental Quiz - We will post a question about environmental topics twice a week and then it will be up to you to research to find an answer. Eco Friendly Cleaning Products Tips - Every other day, for 30 minutes, we will share cleaning tips, facts about ingredients, and Do It Yourself ideas.
Accommodation: Your own home! It might not be a brand new experience, but hey, you might be missing out on sharing a room with the whole workcamp group or having to make a schedule for the showers. Is that really so bad...? Plus, in our virtual camp, you might have a chance to see how different homes all over the world look!
