Evaluate - Reflection/Questions
Has this had the desired impact on our children?
Is there a greater awareness of the impact of litter in our environment?
Did children feel empowered in what they were doing?
Engagement was high
A number of activities helped to keep children focused and on task
Greater cohesion between members of the hapu as they now know each other
Older children were supporting and guiding the young children
Giving children the ‘role’ of enviro superheroes helped to empower them towards our common goal of cleaning our local park and school.

Next step
Possibly a greater focus on the in and outs of recycling. Why can some things be recycled and others can’t?

Also, more of a futuristic approach. If we keep on doing what we are doing what might the world look like in fifty years?
