12 Jul EXCHANGE OF STUDENTS: Lycée Faustin Fleret Students’ answers to liceo croce aleramo students
Hello my name is SUARES Williana, I am in the final year of high school specializing in engineering science, I want to continue in the field of physics chemistry. To answer the question asked, the projects that could be the most interesting to treat would be that of mitigating the phenomenon of early departure from school because a bad school orientation generates a school dropout. The number of young people dropping out of school is 8.2% or 80,000 young people in 2020 in France. Moreover, the project to combat Neet is linked to it because a dropout leads to young people without training, study or employment. This rate of Neet is 12.9% in France in 2019, 1.5 million young people aged 15 to 29 years are affected by this phenomenon. This has increased due to the health crisis and the third of the school year lost due to the confinement. From our point of view in Guadeloupe, there has been a significant dropout following the measures taken by the government, such as the half-measures and the confinement.
Hello, my name is Nolan NAGAPIN, I am a student in the technological section specialized in technological innovation.
Thank you for your very interesting question which was:
which of these problems pollutes the most?
On a global scale, I think that the main cause of pollution on earth is waste:
For information, a European produces 2 kilos of waste/day, and an African produces 600 grams/day
The main solution is to move from a linear economy (we produce, we consume, and we throw away) to a circular economy (sustainable production with 0 waste, consumption of sustainable products and better recycling).
On the scale of Guadeloupe, we find :
Air pollution: The air quality is generally good in Guadeloupe. However, episodes of fine particle pollution, due to sand mists from the Sarah, are regularly observed and are subject to recommendation and alert procedures.
Since 2000, air quality measurements are carried out by the approved association of air quality monitoring in Guadeloupe, Gwad’Air.
Water pollution: the territory is marked by a general malfunctioning of the wastewater collection and treatment systems. But worse, for 20 years, banana planters have polluted the soil and the water table, even the sea, with a very toxic deserbant called Chlordecone.
Waste pollution: But the most acute environmental problem in Guadeloupe remains that of waste management and recycling. Guadeloupe being a small island isolated from the big waste plants, it is necessary to invest a lot of money to have a real treatment of waste. Since 10 years, the selective sorting begins to be set up and we will work to improve the situation taking into account our training in sustainable development and also the awareness that the EUREKA project brought us.
Hello, my name is Préscilia DANQUIN and I am a student in Engineering Science and Mathematics involved in the EUREKA project.
In relation to the question asked, which was: What is your reference data collection agency?
We contacted two organizations, Meteo France and gwad’Air, which are specialists in the meteorological field.
As we could not have access to their data, we will soon invest in a connected sensor to measure air quality. Thanks to this one, we will be able to evaluate the impacts of solar radiation on air quality.
Knowing that in Guadeloupe we are often confronted with Saharan sand mists and that affects the health of the population.
All of the students in the SI specialty appreciated the work you did on the study of the different meteorological parameters. We congratulate you for your presentation.
