$1 donated per bag of rubbish to Take 3 for the Sea. Students are making a small impact in our communities through environmental action on camp!
Since the very beginning of OutBeyond, we’ve made sure that all of our programs contain an element of conservation or community service.
Our organisation regularly enjoys conducting travel and adventure related activities for young people in natural environments in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. In the work that we do, we have a responsibility to give back to the communities in which we operate and to leave a positive legacy for the environment and society.
We have the ability to give all people the fundamental tools that spark ideas for social responsibility, creativity and innovation to bring about positive change and care-factor for the planet.
“On one camp along the great ocean road, the Year 6 students did an amazing job and collected more than 22kg of rubbish and marine debris, over a 4-day period that saw more than 118 students spend 2 hours each taking a stand against litter!” – group leader from the OutBeyond camp.
Students are introduced to the effects that excess waste, rubbish and marine debris can have on the marine environment, before learning about safe methods of marine debris collection and being given safety equipment such as gloves and hi-vis vests.
We make it a fun and educational activity in partnership with Tangaroa Blue and help students to understand where their effort is going, in terms of measurable environmental impact and reducing risk to wildlife and marine life. The best bit is that teachers can track this impact back in the classroom upon returning to school.
We highly encourage all of our schools to include these kinds of activities on camp with OutBeyond.
