Our goal in this workshop is to raise awareness about the causes and consequences of dengue fever, along with showing various preventive measures to combat this epidemic. We will share various resources to engage students in an educative experience to broaden their knowledge and take action in their own communities.

Founded in mid-2015, Wallgreens is a collaboration between like-minded students who wish to take active role in addressing poverty issues, especially nutritional poverty – a very real and commonplace concern in modern society. It is aimed at studying how to effectively grow a vertical farm in urban city-centers – fully utilizing available space while at the same time increasing flora presence – and eventually teaching learned vertical gardening techniques to empower communities in need. The workshop aims to empower students in developing their own eco-centric and sustainable project that will help in the fight against nutritional poverty.

Green School Bali

Global Issue – Pollution
Essential Question – How can we live more sustainably by closing the loop on Used Cooking Oil waste
Workshop Description

Used Cooking Oil is a hazard to the environment and health of the people in Bali.  It is cancer causing  and significantly contributes to ocean and soil acidification.  We intercept the supply chain to the black market by collecting used cooking.  Consequently we mitigate these effects and use this raw material to make biodiesel to run our Green School buses.  We further close the loop on waste by using the byproduct glycerine to make soap.  Solution Suds are sold locally and used to barter for used cooking oil.  During this workshop you will make a batch of solution suds and learn more on how to start a Bio Bus Program!
