Italian rubbish crisis
The southern Campania
region – home to the luxurious Amalfi Coast but also the slums of
Naples – has been plagued by garbage crises in recent years. Quite
recently it has called for international attention.
Campania’s rubbish crisis has a sinister side due to the
involvement of the Neapolitan Mafia, known as the Camorra.Trash
disposal is one of the Camorra’s most lucrative businesses and the
organisation has created hundreds of illegal dumps in the region
where it often buries or burns dangerous refuse.
Please, have a look at the
blog update where we have described the
problem in detail. We encourage you to comment on the issue.
eTwinning students are planning to add video commentaries soon.
Our trip to a recycling plant
On 20 November 2007 a group of eTwinning students from the school in
Jaslo, Poland together with their teachers participated in a trip to
a recycling plant in Krosno, Poland. The recycling plant has been
operating in the region since 2002, and its creation was partially
financed from EU funds. The plant uses modern methods of rubbish
segregation and utilization, which are in accordance with strict EU
regulations concerning this issue.

Energy Saving Day
project “ Be green, don’t be mean “ has the main goal of raising
environmental awareness among high school students and involves two
high schools, one in Jaslo, Poland and one in Castellanza, Italy.
How we use electricity in our homes?
eTwinning students in both participating schools were asked to
fill out a questionnaire, whose results gave a general idea of how
they use electricity in thier everyday life. We try to be green, but
now we have to draw some conlusions what to do to be even greener!
The Power Point questionnaire, which can be downloaded, presents
both the questions and the results.
