Dulwich International Eco-Explorer Camp 2019

Dulwich College Puxi recently hosted our 3rd annual Eco-Explorer Camp  welcoming 130 students from across our Dulwich campuses internationally.

During the 3 day outdoor camp, students slept in tents and experienced hands-on learning from 18 different Eco Education workshops on offer.

Students enjoyed learning how to make sustainable and reusable plastic, how to set up solar panels for energy, they made musical instruments from recycled items and a delicious array of foods using palm oil free ingredients and red meat free substitutes.

Dulwich College Puxi was delighted to welcome guest speaker, Peter Milne from Target4Green. Target4Green https://www.target4green.com/about-us/ is a specialised, hands-on, community centered company dedicated to supporting schools across the world in their education for Sustainable Development. During his talks and workshops, Peter shared critical thinking and provided crucial links for students to become more aware of the global issues we face together.  

Dulwich College Puxi students are active advocates for sustainability and environmental protection. Over the past 12 months they have achieved amazing success in their commitment to removing single use plastic and reducing the amount on waste produced at the College campus. They have banned single use yoghurt tubs – effectively removing more than 31,350 single-serve plastic yoghurt tubs from the college waste stream. Furthermore, they have also banned all plastic straws, take-away coffee cups and plastic lids from the campus…tens of thousands of single use plastic items have been removed from our school's waste stream.
