Volcano: Eco-design Workshop For Children

VOLCANO is a workshop/school of eco-design that produces and teaches children, young people and adults to create games and educational toys from post consume packaging and alternative materials.
When throwing any packaging away, not only are we wasting technology and excellent quality material, but also overloading the dumps and leading the destiny of the waste of the planet to future generations. So, creating and teaching how to create toys, musical instruments and games from resistant and long-lasting packaging, delays the way towards the garbage cycle and enables the development of a more aware, responsible and creative society.
Creating new objects from everyday waste is thinking over our behavior as users. Aware consuming is building up citizenship, considering the impact of our product and service consuming upon the society and the environment. Millions of tons of waste are produced daily in a big city. We should be responsible for our own waste, reducing its volume and helping preserve the environment making the city a cleaner and more pleasant place.
Transforming post consume packaging into new and educational games by using creative energy is a cheap and clean alternative of retarding material recycling. Packaging can be back to waste after being worn out by use.
The most important issue for this design is identify the kind of post-consume packaging produced by a community, and transform them into new and educational objects. For example, in Brazil, in the south-west region (more industrialized) the post-consume packaging are absolutely different from the north-east region, offering different solutions and possibilities. Therefore, the real challenge is to understand what the local and daily waste is and what we can do with that. Low cost of objects makes possible the generation of direct income to transforming agents.
