Eco Cubby teams architects with schools and preschools to collaborate with the children to build cubbies using the principles of sustainable design.
Have a look at the amazing designs children have come up with on display at the recent 2010 Eco Cubby Launch:
There is so much to love about this program:
- it takes learning outside;
- it builds on children's interests:
- it teaches sustainable living in a way that is fun, meaningful and hands-on;
- it brings the community and schools and preschools together;
- it listens to the kids.
I wish this sort of thing happened when I was at school. Come to think of it, I wish this sort of thing happened now in more schools.
Do you know of any similar projects? I'd love to hear about them.
