GeoFest 2022

 

GeoFest 2022

GeoFest 2022 – what a mess! Thousands of discarded tents, sleeping bags and camping chairs, mountains of food waste, litres of fuel, in fact enough waste to fill 78 fully loaded Boeing 747s.  

We challenged Year 7, 8 and 9 to help. Hunting amongst our mocked-up festival, our Key Stage 3 gurus looked for clues linked to the negative impacts a festival footprint leaves behind finding issues ranging from plastic pollution to eutrophication. 

 

 

Next, what can we do? In small teams they designed their own green festival, packed full of creative names and themes. Our gurus sourced edible water bottles, cardboard tents, considered the idea of harnessing kinetic energy from dance floors, promoted public transport and delved into the world of compostable toilets.  

We sent our gurus away with further reading and the challenge of returning with a full proposal for a fantastic and filth free festival for the future. Who will be crowned the winner? Watch this space.
