Sulplast ministers lectures on sustainability for Colégio Claretiano students

On 10/1/20 and 10/2/20, the Quality and Environment Coordinator of SULPLAST, Cinthia Prado, ministers two online lectures about Environmental Education to 2nd year students of Elementary School at Colégio Claretiano.
Focused on first and second childhood, the initiative seeks to build sustainable thinking at the very beginning of the citizen’s formation. But according to Cinthia, despite their young age: "The children already have a perception of what is wrong and does not contribute to the environment, being able to clearly cite the bad habits they see in their daily routine".
With active participation of the kids, in an easy, fun and interactive way, during the event were approached aspects such as environmental preservation actions, conscious use of natural resources, selective collect and product life cycle.
From the perspective of the Claretian College Teachers, Renata Alves Pereira and Rosangela Aparecida Gregolin, who acted as mediators of the lectures, the students liked the approach and were touched by the content. As quoted by Teacher Rosangela: “In the students' speeches we could see the concern in putting into practice everything they learned (in the classroom and in the lecture) about rethinking our attitudes; recycle, reduce and reuse ”. For Teacher Renata, this kind of activity is integrated with the work developed daily and broadens the children's horizon: “The difference in a lecture, with a different person from school, is that it allows students to show that the subject is also important out of the classroom”.
According to the Specialist Psychologist in Inclusive Education, Yasmine Hernandes David João: “It is in the first and second childhood that we build habits and most of life's concepts, then, teaching about environmental education since the early years of basic education, is essential to ensure that the next generations see how important the management of the environment is ”.
In addition, as reported by the Pedagogue Specialized in Teaching Modalities, Eliete França, this type of action contributes to the environmental awareness of two generations: “Studies show that teaching the child we are able to reach the adult. It is very common to see families change their habits due to their children's influence”. Vision also shared by the Environmental Technician Jéssica Maria Fernandes: “In environmental education, the child is seen as a seed that will blossom and disseminate information, so that when a teenager or adult, be a transformative and conscious agent, in relation to environmental preservation” .
A company committed to economic, social and environmental transformation, in accordance with the ISO 14.001 guidelines, SULPLAST carries out various activities in order to promote Environmental Education among children, youth and adults. Thus, we built in the present, the path to a more sustainable future.
