An activist and a Climatologist at school
We were lucky to welcome Adelaïde Charlier, Belgian activist for the climate and Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, climatologist at our school.
They answered our questions on climate change. They also gave us hope that young teenagers can really take actions to have an impact on decisions.

Good Planet Challenge 1 - Eat local food
Good planet is an organisation that wants to change our society to a sustainable society by making small or big moves.
In Belgium, 500 schools participated in “croque local” which means eat local food.
We received an apple at school on the eve of world food day.
This free apple came from an orchard in Belgium (40 kilometres from our school). This avoids a long journey so less pollution as well.
It was of course not wrapped in plastic. The apple was so delicious... yummy!

Visit of a beekeeper
On Thursday 07 October, a beekeeper came in the class of 6tqp (vocational section of the school, arts students).
He explained how bees make honey, how they breed and how many they are in a beehive.
A slideshow was shown for the students to understand better.
There were a lot of pictures of bees but also their anatomies and their function in the beehives.
He explained us how a beehive works and he told us about the rules to sell honey on the market.
This class has a project, Erasmus + friends of Environment biodiversity. So, he came to explain why bees are the most important insect.
They mean a lot for the Environment because without them flowers will not reproduce so fruit will not grow and vegetables as well.
Without bees we’d be dead. We could see that the beekeeper is passionate about them.
He explained things very well so it was very catchy.
To be devoted to our project we needed to know more about bees so it was really useful.
