The students of Seaton Burns share their photographic posters to express their concerns about pollution, waste management, habitat loss, and other issues affecting their local environment. They want to send a message that trees are precious, recycling is vital, and nature needs our protection, not abuse. Click here to see how they worked together to propose solutions for safeguarding their environment.

    The making of photographic posters was really creative and a fascinating demonstration of student environmental awareness. Just by the quality of their work, anyone can determine how interested they are in shaping the environment exactly how they imagine it to be. This also serves as motivation for people to appreciate recycling.

    The posters are not only beautiful, but informative. Using a collage also promotes reusing materials! Great way to educate on the environment while following through with the practices you are trying to promote.

      All of these posters are so beautiful, informative and creative. Have you considered putting statistics on your poster? I feel that statistics would add more important information and draw more attention to your issue. The pictures helped me see the pollution. I enjoyed looking at your posters, nice work!

      I love house material as furniture. This project I really agree and it’s seem good, cause we need to use the idea and power of activities to approve, and try on the best of edditting. It’s very hard to do on it. It’s a great picture.

      I think that recycling is magnificent and that all communities should do recycling projects. You have inspired many others to start recycling. Thank you for your inspiring project.

        You brought out many important issues that we need to solve in this world. Having young people like you guys bring out these different problems to be solved is an amazing goal. I hope you guys persevere in this goal and to inspire your neighbors to recycle and to nurture our earth. In my opinion, this is a great idea to motivate others to continue this goal and to solve these problems in our world. Learning from your project it opened up my eyes to help my community to address the same issue for recycling and to make this world a better place.

        I think this is an amazing idea and an important issue. Educating young students is especially important because children are of the working age and can make a real difference in the future. Additionally, educating children in a fun way (the scavenger hunt) will help them retain the information they’re learning so they can apply it later. More activities like this will help students develop and grow every year and if they can continue the program, young students can make a big impact.

        It is reassuring to see young students recognise the severe impacts that littering has on the environment and understand the need to practice being sustainable. Even further than just throwing litter and other items that are harmful to the environment in the bin, we should reevaluate why we are using these items in the first place and work towards reducing our usage of these items.

          I think this is a great Idea to help educate others on how truly dependent we are on the environment. I think it is very important that we realize that without health environments we so many of the things we have and take for granted would cease to exist. Therefore working to find solutions to preserve our environments is more than a worthwhile cause, and I think this project does a good job at presenting that.

            Seaton Burn,
            Recycling is so much more important than society believes it is. It blows me away how many homes and public places do not recycle. If there was more of a societal effort put toward this, I believe the amount of waste could be reduced, as well as the fact that materials could be reused for another life. Humans don’t realize how much they are taking from the earth and become selfish when taking more and more resources.
            I completely agree that this cannot go on!

              I really liked your project. I liked how you explained what the students had to do, then showed their work. I liked that you had the pictures of the projects separate instead of making them small to put them on the cap. Great job!
