If you want to create a sustainable project for your community, you can start a competition at your school, giving everyone a chance to make their sustainable project. Encouraging competition and creativity at your school will educate them about sustainability and stimulate their minds, which will help them later. You can make 50% of the artwork using recycled materials so they can learn the benefits of reusing things. For more information on these types of art projects, check out this site.
