  • Four local schools have joined the programme to raise awareness of environmental education among Castilian students

Four schools in Castalla will participate in the pilot project ‘CreaCompost’, an initiative of the CREA Waste Consortium, to which Castalla belongs, to implement community composting in schools. The aim of the programme is to explain how organic waste can be turned into compost, participating in the process of the circular economy. The presentation of the project took place at the Rico Sapena CEIP, with the presence of the Mayor of Castalla, Antonio Bernabeu, the Councillor for the Environment, Asun Vera, and the Councillor for Education, Saúl Mira, as well as the manager of the Consortium, Oscar Giménez, and the director of the centre, Enrique Sánchez.

CreaCompost’ was created with the aim of increasing separation at source and with this, reducing the waste we generate in our homes and reusing organic waste for the creation of compost. Through this program, students learn in a theoretical and practical way, through experience, the natural process of composting.

In addition, students in Castellut will learn the key concepts related to sustainability, the importance of soil, the circular economy and waste separation. The Councillor for the Environment, Asun Vera, stated that “the objective is none other than to ensure that the children of our city learn and become aware of environmental education, in order to become eco-responsible citizens”.

For his part, the head of Education, Saúl Mira, explained that “this project gives us the opportunity to offer workshops for students and training for teachers and those in charge of composting”. Furthermore, the councillor highlighted that “the consortium will provide us with continuous advice and support and will carry out technical monitoring visits”.

The CREA Waste Consortium provides all the necessary resources free of charge to the centres participating in the initiative, such as buckets and containers for the separation of organic resources, so that they can start composting on their premises. The consortium also provides the schools’ teachers with the corresponding training materials. It should be noted that the project is co-financed by the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge.

Currently, the educational centres in Castalla participating in ‘CreaCompost’ are the Cadella school, where the necessary materials have already been installed, the María Asunta school, the Enric Valor secondary school and the Rico Sapena Primary School, where the initiative has been publicly presented. So far, thirty-five centres in the consortium’s management area have decided to include this content in their classrooms.
