The two secondary education centers of Xàbia have joined the call of the Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, participating in the Global Strike for Climate I had planned for today March 15 Friday.
In the case of IES nº1 of Xàbia, the initiative was carried out by a student of the center, Alberto Aceituno, who after following the movement of the Swedish activist, proposed to his colleagues and the center to carry out a similar action focused on plastic pollution.
Concentrated in the courtyard of the center with posters, two of the students, Alberto and Candela, have read a manifesto in which they valued taking measures against the pollution of the environment and the effects it is generating as the increase in temperature.
Both have stressed the importance of seeking a solution from the whole society, «Because the solution is in our hands». Also, after reading, students of 4º of ESO and 1º and 2º of Bachillerato of IES nº1 have moved to the First Montañar where they have made a collection of plastics, paper and polluting waste.
IES Antoni Llidó
For their part, the students of the IES Antoni Llidó, specifically of the courses of 3º and 4º of the ESO and 2º of Bachiller have also adhered to this call carrying out the collection of papers, plastics and butts in the historic center of Xàbia .
The philosophy professor, Elena Ferrando, has commented that "We live in a very nice town and everything we throw on the ground goes to the sea. We want you to become aware of the pollution and what is collected today is very difficult to recycle, recycling is not enough in the container. In general we have to reduce the consumption of plastics and cigars that end up reversing in the food chain and we want the students to be aware ».
