Environmental Educational Campaign to culminate with an art exhibition


All islanders are invited to attend an environmental art exhibition to be held at the Banyan Bay Suites conference room from 8AM to 12PM in San Pedro Town on Saturday, November 3rd. The art exhibition is culmination of the educational environmental campaign that was launched a few weeks ago by the Rotaract Club of Ambergris Caye along with MarAllliance.
The campaign facilitated educational sessions to upper division students of the different primary schools on the island. The sessions were on the importance of protecting and keeping our environment clean. The presentations were based on scientific facts on the negative effects of plastic pollution, how it affects the environment, how it affects us individually, and what we can do to reuse, reduce and recycle on the island. At the end of each presentation, students were asked questions to see what they learned, and some even received a bamboo straws to motivate them to stop using plastic ones. Throughout the campaign, the team managed to work with over 500 students of the island.
According to MarAlliance Estela Requena, through this arts creation children will learn how to recycle and how to decrease the single use of plastic. “Majority of the arts they will be creating are from recycled items as well as other materials we can use instead of plastic,” she said.
The environmental art exhibition is free of cost and everyone is encouraged to come out and learn some environmental tips from the island students. For more information on this you can contact Requena via email [email protected] or call 600-2922
