OUR PROJECTS

Here is a few of the projects that have been planned and implemented by MUNDO Institute:

TALKING ABOUT WASTE WITH AN ENTHUSIASTIC COMMUNITY GROUP

UnWaste Workshop 2018

Anahata & Wellbeing Centre

25 participants

MUNDO Institute together with the Anahata & Wellbeing Centre offered an interactive workshop to provide the participants with a space for discussing and learning about waste generation, avoidance, reduction, reuse and recycling.

WORKING WITH YOUNG CHAMPIONS ON THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL CONTRIBUTION TO THEIR COMMUNITY

The STARTTS Capoeira Angola Youth Camp 2017

STARTTS

35 participants

The aim of this camp, organised by STARRTS, was to build student’s strength and self-steem so students can be more conscious and participative in their communities. MUNDO Institute developed and delivered a workshop to foster sustainable behaviour amongst participants and their communities that was very successful and received excellent feedback from participants.

FRUITFUL CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT WITH REFUGEE STUDENTS

STARTTS Environmental workshop & BBQ 2016

STARTTS

15 participants

Mestre Roxinho from Project Bantu International Foundation at STARTTS was concerned about the lack of knowledge and the attitude of his students in regards to the environment. Project Bantu assists over 300 youth from refugee backgrounds to recover from the impacts of trauma and to settle in Australia and in the Australian school environment.

He felt like there was a hole to be filled as his youth students hadn’t received any kind of education at school in this sense. Mestre Roxinho decided to engage MUNDO Institute and trial out a workshop with his most innovative students. MUNDO Institute planned and organised a day event, developed and delivered a tailored workshop and facilitated some behavioural changing conversations and activities.

SAVING RESOURCES AND EDUCATING YOUNG STUDENTS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

The 8th STARTTS Capoeira Angola Youth Event 2016

Project Bantu International Foundation

MUNDO Institute assisted STARTTS with strategies to make their event a more sustainable event. Prior to our involvement in the project, STARTTS did not plan for any kind of environmental or sustainability programs for their events. MUNDO Institute planned, organised and implemented sustainability actions that not only saved natural and financial resources but also educated the young participants about the importance of looking after the environment.
