Inquiries – War on waste

In this inquiry we tackle the large & complex global issue of waste. With
automation & modern farming there is a greater variety & abundance
of food available to the consumer. However our throwaway culture has
created a rubbish problem that now pollutes every corner of the world.

In this inquiry, we will observe & interact with a range of people in order
to understand diverse experiences & motivations to gain a deeper
personal understanding of the issues, needs & challenges involved in
food & food packaging waste. Through their insights participants will
develop a real world solution to take action on this issue.

Duration: 3 days (consecutive)

Dates: Mon 17th, Tue 18th, Wed 19th December

10am – 4pm

For more information and to put your child on the expression of interest list, please email Miriam Mollema with your childs name, age and suburb also which program you’d be interested in participating in. I can’t guarantee you a space, and priority will be given to locals, but it seems like there will likely be opportunities going forwards into the future.
