Case Study: Poo Patrol Big Spray Day

Schools in Bristol were engaged through the Sustainable Learning Initiative to sign up for the Big Spray Day event, along with community groups. We ran competitions for poster and stencil designs by children, and produced stencils to display the best slogans. Lessons developed awareness of the issues around dog fouling and worm infection, whilst helping to elicit creative solutions and interventions. In total 25 schools and 16 community groups registered.

Teachers took classes out locally, where they spray-painted dog fouling and stencilled slogans, displayed pupil-designed posters, and entered data including numbers and locations. Community group actions also co-ordinated with those of school classes. Two weeks later, we repeated the exercise in order to measure the impact on the rate of fouling and, as a result, identify hotspots for cleaning and future anti-fouling action.
