A challenge for this year is to take recycling to a school in Lo Barnechea that has not implemented it, and the plan is already taking concrete steps.
In line with its objective of contributing to a change of habits among the members of our community and proposing actions that allow us to make better choices to take care of our environment, our SC Eco Green Team took on the challenge of taking recycling to a school in Lo Barnechea that has not yet implemented it. For this, our Student Council met with the student committee of the Betterland school to work on an action plan.
“In coordination with the Municipality, we have developed a joint work between students of both schools help to develop a plan to incorporate recycling in the two campuses of Betterland College. Santiago College will be purchasing containers for the recycling and Lo Barnechea will be in charge of picking it up on a regular basis,” explained Derrick Allen, coordinator of the SC Eco Green Team.
The student councils of both schools and the SC Eco Green Team met last week, first at Betterland to get a feel of the needs, and then at Santiago College to analyze what has been already implemented. The experience was positive for the students, who shared ideas and planned ongoing exchanges related to sustainability and the environment.
“Congratulations to the entire Eco Green Team and Student Council, particularly Emily Soza, Juana Cardona, Josefina Kalos, Josefina Norel and Diana Valdes for their vision and determination to make this happen, despite many setbacks. Many thanks to Javier Chavez for helping to organize Friday’s welcome and the very warm reception from the Student Council led by Elisa Hauser, Vicente Pizarro and Laura Jana,” added Allen.
This project will be funded with the funds raised during the Earth Day celebration in SC.
