279 children in 13 classes collected 2,957 green footprints at the school „ Christian-Maar-Schule”.
In the 1st – 4th grade they talked about the greenhouse effect.
In the 1st and 2nd grade they talked primarily about stretches of way (way to school and ways in the afternoon):
- Our way to school: How do I reach school safely and environmentally friendly?
In the 3rd and 4th grade they talked about stretches of way (way to school and ways in the afternoon) but also about energy saving methods and renewable energy.
Some classes made posters and footprints out of cardboard on which they promise to protect the climate or the make specific demands, for example more traffic lights on the way to school, more playgrounds and/or play streets.
This year, the kindergarten Wirbelwind participated for the first time.
They wrote us the following letter:
“Dear organizers of Climate Alliance,
For one week we have collected:
Green footprints by foot, scooter, bicycle and bus: 505.
Red footprints for regional food: 69.
Blue footprints for energy saving: 58.
Of course, we will keep on with that.
Best regards from Unterschleißheim
The children and the team of the kindergarten.
For years, the Kneipp-Kindergarten Pusteblume has been participating in the Green Footprint Campaign
They are themed: Not go by car but walk and ride the bike. The idea is to renounce the car, parents are either using public transport and bring their children to the day-care center or let them go by scooter or bike.
Unfortunately, Illerzell is not benefited by public transport. Due to that, the parents came up with some ideas if the car has to be used, nevertheless.
“We also have children from Vöhringen coming to our day-care center and even one child comes from Illerrieden”, says the director of the center, Beatrix Schrode. These parents have parked their cars at the edges of the town Illerzell and have walked to the day-care center Pusteblume. “Or”, as told by Beatrix Schrode, „they have taken the scooter or bike out of the trunk and the children went the last part of the way by muscular power.
This year, from 23th June to 4th July 2014, two groups with 25 children each collected 396 Green Footprints.
