This call was set to share what we learned in Climate Action project (http://www.climate-action.info). Vietnamese students told us that pollution is a serious problem in their nation and Dennish students showed us their ideas with Minecraft and we were all amazed to see their high creativity.
Also, a Dennish girl asked us why Tokyo is so clean - well, honestly the cityside in Japan is not so clean as the coutryside. But one rule that might interest you is that in Japan everyone never leaves trash. If we can't find trash boxes, we usually bring the trash to our home and it is like a tacit rule. If you leave them, you will be regarded as rude or ignorant. Even in my school, students must bring the plastic bottles to their home if you bring one from their home. I think this rule influences greatly to keep the environment clean.
Let me show my gratitude to the two educators we had a call on the day - Lieu Nguyen Thi from Vietnam and Katja Borregaard from Denmark. It was great pleasure to see you two after meeting you in E2 Toronto.
