What you need:
- DOC posters
- Google images/book/Nat Geographic images
- coloured paper for the background
- rubbish (collected from the campus)
- tools: blu-tack/stapler/tape/guillotine/scissors/ glue stick/ruler
What to do:
I covered the outer panels with the DOC posters and filled the background with green paper. The posters were overlapping and I cut off the brown edges and with them created a frame around the printed information from their website. That way the information matched the design of the posters.
Clean-Up Week is all about rubbish; rubbish we often carelessly drop. The maintenance team keeps the campus very tidy but it is amazing what you can find after one interval. Clean-Up Week is not only about a far away project that we can support. It is about what we can do here and now in our own environment. I collected trash during a 20 minute stroll over the campus and attached it to the board. Empty food containers, bottles, a half eaten apple and biscuits in resealable bags, chips bags, candy bar wrappers, and so on.
I printed the posters from the Clean-Up Week website and enlarged and printed the logo ‘Keep New Zealand Beautiful’ dozens of times to make a border around the posters on the board.
The Clean-Up Week panel in the middle was a nice contrast with the two Conservation Week panels on the outside and fitted perfectly with the theme.
