Smart Living sustainability lessons

Smart Living

The Smart Living outreach programme teaches children about the pillars of sustainability: Biodiversity, energy, water, and waste. Teacher Anzio, brings a fun and colourful van to your school, packed with educational activities that relate to each of the four themes. With tech-savvy presentations and hands-on learning, children are able to grasp concepts such as how electricity is produced, how to calculate a water footprint, and the biodiversity of Cape Town.

All of these themes fit well within the CAPS curriculum content of Grade 6s and 7s, and are available in English and Afrikaans. The aim of the Smart Living outreach programme is to teach children about responsible ways of living, in their homes and within their city, by protecting our biodiversity, conserving energy and water use, and minimising waste.
