"Graz ist Klasse" tours

  • We answer all the questions relating to the topic of waste. Why is waste separated when it is collected? Which waste containers are there? What can be put in the container and what is not allowed in it? What happens to the waste? How and why should we avoid waste?

    Our waste consultants from the environmental department of the city of Graz visit the kindergarten or school.

    Duration: up to 2 lessons

    IMPORTANT: We also offer in-depth project mornings on the topics of waste avoidance and waste separation.
