9th and second to last stop for "GREEN out of the BOX" at the music school of Siatista!

On 29/02/2024, the Music School of Siatista received the “green box” from the High School of Servia in Kozani. The students and teachers of the GEL of Servia were transported to Siatista by bus together with members of the GO Alive project team, most of the cost of which was covered by the “Green out of the Box” project.

At the same time, the students of the General High School of Servia had the opportunity to visit another school outside their community, but also to spend some time in the traditional area of Siatista. A special chapter begins for the students of the school, within the framework of the “Green out of the Box” project.

During the handover ceremony of the box at the Music School of Siatista, a group of students and teachers from the High School of Servia presented the results of the challenge they undertook, which involved the creation of 4 waste bins made of recyclable materials, 3 of which were made of used plastic bottles and one bin from an old computer mainframe. They delivered the “GreenBox” to the students of the Music School of Siatista, continuing the chain by adding another school.

The handover ceremony was followed by interactive trainings based on GreenComp for both students and teachers, by members of the GO Alive project team. In particular, students had the opportunity to play an interactive team game “Mission Possible” , where they were given some “green” tasks and had 40 minutes to solve them. While, teachers had the opportunity to learn about the European GreenComp skills framework and how it can be used through the education system.

Within two weeks and with the support of their teachers, the students of the Music School of Siatista successfully met the challenge, creating 4 musical instruments from recyclable materials.

The “Green out of the Box” journey continues outside the city of Kozani, giving the opportunity to smaller schools to participate in the project, promoting sustainability education and lifelong learning, ensuring a lasting impact on future generations, leading to sustainable societies!

Stay tuned as the effort to raise environmental awareness among students across the Kozani regional unit continues, motivating them to think out of the box and take active action for a better and more sustainable future!
