Alyson and Ellen taught a workshop on environmental awareness and sustainability at the Nawalpur Secondary School with a group of 7th graders. The focus of the workshop was to go over basic environmental science concepts, like the carbon cycle and the difference between biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials.

The workshop was a great opportunity to engage local Nepali teenagers and ask them what they know about local waste management practices and allow them to brainstorm ways it can be improved. As our first time at the Nawalpur Secondary School, it was a great introduction to interacting with older age groups in our area, and inspiring future programming that promotes sustainability and green values in the next generation of young Nepalis.
