In 2012 a number of Earth Carers decided to extend their knowledge and experiences and try the Advanced Earth Carer course in May. There were 4 sessions, including a marathon tour of a construction and demolition recycling facility and a commercial recycling depot; interesting input from commercial waste and recycling facility and some perspectives on how we can make a difference from Anne Pettit and Peg Davies.
A major aspect to the course was to develop and carry out a project to 'make a difference' and reduce waste generated, particularly from going to landfill. This proved both a challenge and a stimulation with a variety of ideas and projects in the mix, some much more ambitious than others. The aim was to choose something achievable and enjoyable.
The next Advanced Earth Carers course will be held in July 2017 and will involve 3 sessions in the evening and a day time tour.
To be eligible for the Advanced Earth Carers course applicants are to:
Be graduates of the Earth Carers training
