Ecological projects “Chance: garbage” and “Dialogue with water” in the framework of the network innovative culturological project “Young people in the dialogue”

Greeting: Good afternoon, we are the representatives of a Moscow region from the school №2012. Our names are Alexey Pakskin and Alina Nazarina, our teacher Anna Ryleva.  

We offer to your attention our small film about Moscow.

We live in the south-east administrative district of the capital, which is one of the largest districts of Moscow. Over one million people lives in our district.  It consists of 12 regions, one of which is Lyublino, where we live.

The shape of the district on the map resembles the head of a horse. We saw the peculiar symbol there, because the symbol of Moscow is George The Victorious on the horse.

The district Lyublino was mentioned in the 16th century for the first time.

The coat of our district shows its features: green park, railroad station and ponds.

The district is rich in historical monuments, and modern designs are under construction now.

Our school is one of the modern buildings and we prepared a video about the school.

Our school has many friends, among them are Mikhail Gorbachov, Andrey Bitov, Vadim Rabinovich, representatives of departments and ministries, especially closely we cooperate with The Russian Institute of Culturology.

Our school has several directions of activity, but we came up with our own project “Young people in the dialogue”. This project has several directions: participation in the international cultural festival “Euroad”, international linguistic educational programs, international exchange and many in-Russian network projects.

One of the Russian projects is the city camp “Young journalist”.

We invite well-known people so that children can interview them.

Our school pays attention to the projects of UNESCO associated schools. We are proud of our participation in projects and our victories in them. 

We have done ecological projects within the framework of the project “Young journalist” since the last year.

Our district is situated in park and industrial areas at the same time, therefore we began to think about its ecology and we have been working in this direction for two years. Thus our ecological project became culturological.

Last year this project was called “Chance: garbage”. We invited on this network project Konstantin Kedrov – poet and philosopher. It lasted several days: the first was very hard. The subject of this day was “Look around, our planet is unique”. Children acquainted with each other, combined in groups and then we watched the film “Dump”.

The second day we thought that the main problem is garbage in our heads, and first we should get rid of our own garbage, then should save the world from it. We visited the museum of modern art, where played on “garbage” exhibition. 

The motto of the third day was “Your future is the future of your planet”, and the end of the exhibition was the press conference with Konstantin Kedrov. So groups of children created the exhibition “Dump”, where were artworks from garbage. According to the results we prepared the journal, in which we showed our impressions.

The ecological forum was called “Dialogue with water” this year.

The motto of the forum was “Know, value, act”.

The invited person on this network project was the deputy of Lyublino Evgeny Timonin. We watched the film “House” and visited airing fields of Lyublino, worked in the modern gallery, carried out experiments with water. 

The peculiarity of this year was the practical direction of the forum. It was suggested to organize voluntary ecological actions at the level of schools, district, region and city. For example, placing “clever” refuse bins 50 meters away from each other, enlargement of the network receiving center of containers (glass and aluminium), and small points in crowded areas during mass events. We engaged in social advertising and decided to try technologies of other school-participants to separate collecting garbage. We came to a conclusion that our district needed more artificial reservoirs and offered new projects for creation this reservoirs.

These projects were taken by the committee of natural resources and ecology for clarification of possibility to realize it
