Abstract

This project consists of an instructional composting video to help reduce the amount of waste produced in San Jose, Costa Rica, a country whose unique environmental resources are being threatened by overburdened landfills. The climate and waste management practices of the region, the science of composting, and our target population were analyzed in order to produce accurate content and an effective instructional approach. Four methods of composting are presented in an interactive DVD format, suitable for classroom and home viewing.
