Studying public attitudes towards domestic waste management|
In October 1997, we, a group of six students from Edgecliff Sixth Form Centre, England, joined the Young Reporters for the Environment project, run by the FEEE. The team was placed in the Waste Management Investigation Team of the Project along with other European schools in France, Italy and Portugal. The common environmental problem that we studied was public attitudes towards domestic waste. We particularly looked at the recycling of domestic waste and we aimed to establish public attitudes and awareness towards facilities available and what could be recycled in the local areas. Each team then wrote their own local article from their findings.

Once these were all written, we, along with the other three schools, wrote a collaborative article on the similarities and differences between waste management attitudes in the four countries.
