The waste is the enemy of the modern society!

Waste, is an unwanted or undesired material or substance. It is also referred to as rubbish, trash, garbage, or junk depending upon the type of material and the regional terminology.
Waste is directly linked to the human development, both technologically and socially. The composition of different wastes have varied over time and location.
With industrial development and innovation being directly linked to waste materials.
We can classify the waste: paper, glass, wood, metals, plastics, biodegradable waste (food waste or sewage), nuclear waste.
Some components of waste have economical value and can be recycled once correctly recovered.

We are two schools (“Lycee Condorcet” from France and “Vasile Alecsandri” High School from Romania) and we just begon this new eTwinning project.

The OBJECTIVES of the partnership are:
• To develop a responsible mature attitude toward waste
• To understand that both environment, ways of production and living conditions are in close mutual dependency
• To highlight the tight relationship among waste and health, physical welfare, cleaning, social welfare.
• To inquire at both personal and collective level the material value of waste as resource.
• To understand that waste inspired works of artists
• Read, produce and understand brochures, various depliants, schemes, graphs, work tables using ICT tools
• Scientific area objectives:
1.To know what is waste and where you can find it
2.To know the natural cycle of biodegradable waste.
3.To know and classify the waste
4.To understand risks of the non-recycling the waste
5.To understand the importance of waste as a resource
• To recognize changes occurred in life habits comparing some aspects of actual life against that of grandfathers or great grandfathers.
• To distinguish the participation of the man that negatively afflict the exploitation of waste.
• To know local agencies which operate on the territory for processing of waste
• Excursions in the territory and documentation.

THEMATIC CONTENT of the project involve general informations about our countries and schools, definition of waste, European and specific legislation, collecting and recycling the waste, environmental impact.

During the project we will develop our blog: http://etwinningwaste.blogspot.com/
