Incursion: PLASTIC FREE BOY comes to your school.
Schools book me to come to present my film to their students to create more impact. I have just been to a few big schools, 2 big schools in Brisbane recently. Although I cannot attend all screenings, I can come to some or Skype in. That's fun too.
This film has cost a lot of time and effort. Please give a contribution, which goes towards the funding of my ongoing campaign. (more videos etc.)
Option 2: Win-Win
Screening License for Schools and Communities to create Impact.
$5/child/person. 50% of the proceeds with the school or community to improve your waste management.
Testimonial for Option 1 : The students and staff at our school were inspired by the Plastic Alarm film, as well as the words Arlian, ‘the Plastic Free Boy’, shared with us. As a community we will be following up with a school based initiative that reflects working towards a plastic free environment. Thank you Arlian, for sharing your passion and initiative with us! Margo Carwardine, Principal of St.Peter Chanel Primary School
Testimonial: We are all from Middle T (grade 3 and 4) at St. Oliver Plunketts in Victoria. We would like to thank you for making a movie about pollution and ways to help save our beautiful animals, especially the turtles. You have really inspired all of us to try and reduce the amount of plastic we use and also to convince our families and other members of our community to do the same. Thank you for trying to make the world we live in a better place. We hope you succeed on your mission to protect our sea life. Stay turtally cool!
OPTION 1: OUR VISION AND BEST CASE SCENARIO:
The way we would like schools to present our film, is by purchasing the WIN WIN option: $5/child license fee to see the film. 50% of this money stays with the school to invest and improve their waste management. Ideally replacing single use plastic with reusable solutions. Kids that are interested in becoming 'Plastic Free Boy Representatives' in school can write to him. 2 kids selected will involved in the decision on how the money is spent: The school gives them options to choose from.
This empowerment shows Education through Leadership and Action, which leads to the desired positive Impact in the Environment. We hope to find inspired teachers and schools that take on this model, leading with us a movement of change. We can roll it out everywhere.
Learning Outcomes based on Curriculum:
This film is the perfect catalyst for students to look at the issue of plastic waste and then develop some strategies around reductions, avoidance, reducing plastic litter in school/the street - waterways - ocean. With an easy call to action for reducing plastic use and waste."
Learning for sustainability seeks to enable and empower students to make decisions and take actions that contribute to creating a sustainable society and ecosystem.
Project-based learning allows students to develop knowledge and understanding from multiple subjects. This helps them to apply this in the context of their school, classroom and local environment.”
Mark Caddey, Senior Project Officer, Sustainable Communities, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage
