2021 Student Engagement - Centro Universitário Internacional UNINTER - Brazil
At UNINTER, we understand the importance of sustainability and engaging students at a young age. Through the project “Education and Sustainability”, we have promoted learning activities about the environment at public schools in southern Brazil. More specifically, in the city of Carazinho in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Here, UNINTER has promoted sustainable action in eight public schools with a focus on issues such as reducing water consumption, recycling, energy savings, social mobilization, and waste treatment in the schools.
Although there are many projects and activities within this initiative, an example is the use of organic vegetable gardens planted at the schools. Children learn about fruits and vegetables by planting them with their teachers. No pesticides are used, only compost fertilizer. The children get to see the plants grow and afterwards can take home organic vegetables. A gratifying learning experience for both the students and the teachers.
