The possibilities are endless with what you could do with plastic. The theme of this conference got us thinking about how we can be responsible citizen geographers.
We decided to collect plastic bottles and turn them into DIY (Do It Yourself) crafts, because we realised that everyone benefits when we keep our surroundings clean.

Come to our activity stall, learn about the harmful effects of plastic.
But more importantly, come by and make your own bird feeders, piggy banks, pencil cases, and be a Citizen Geographer!
