This unit contains six lessons for Years 3-8 and is designed to support you and your students to produce quality films for the MobileMuster Film Competition. The Mobile Muster Film Contest is closed for 2019 and will reopen again in the months leading into 2020 National Recycling Week. In the meantime check out these lessons and add them to your planning for 2020.
Films should aim to encourage the community to recycle their old or unused mobile phones. The environmental benefits gained from recycling mobile phones are: avoiding future greenhouse gas emissions, saving energy, protecting the environment and conserving natural resources.
MobileMuster is the product stewardship program of the mobile phone industry and is accredited by the federal government. It is voluntarily funded by all of the major handset manufacturers and network carriers to provide a free mobile phone recycling program in Australia to the highest environmental standard. The program is committed to raising awareness and educating the community on why it is important to recycle.
