Workshops

MIRROR TO THE WORLD WORKSHOPS organised by ZÖFI

FOR SCHOOLS

We offer our workshops for young groups between the age of 10-18. Main objective is to think about the most important environmental and social challenges and show other living alternatives. The groups are interactive and learning by playing, the group leaders are young professionals working at various NGOs bringing their own personal experiences to the workshops.
 

THIS IS HOW WE LIVE – An overview of the environmental crisis, overpopulation, consuming society and the links between them. We imagine through a game that the class is the whole population of the world. How do we live? What are the different ways of life? Which is more attractive? We get acquainted with the definition of ecological footprint and we get to know what measures the Happy Planet Index?

 

TRENDY STUFF? – We explore the story of our daily objects around us. Who and how our trendy jeans were made? What will happen to those gadgets, stuff that we do not need anymore? We are talking about social and environmental impacts of shopping. As an art-work we create new objects from waste, such as cans become vallet.

 

OUR FOOD – What we eat has an effect on our health, nature, and the farmer’s life. With the help of some demonstrative pictures we explore-who eats what in the world? How can we get local, non-chemical, ethical food? s it possible to buy products from satisfied local farmer? Visitors coming to our education center are offered with small tasters.

 

COURSES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

At the spring of 2009 we first held courses for young people between the age 18-26. The 3 day course with a school practice became a great success. Since then the group leader has been our active partner in social and ecological programs at the Mirror to the World Exhibition.

COURSES FOR TEACHERS

We have been organising courses for teachers and other professionals working together with young people. At the afternoon sessions they gather some inspiration for their daily work and get creative ideas how to deal with global environmental and social topics. We take on the demonstration and simulation of the Mirror to the World game collection.
