Trisha Klancar's curator insight, August 21, 2013 10:07 AM

I love this...We are in Quebec City..this is in Montreal but it is the same. Very little recycling is done...people in homes do it then in the news we hear how it sits outside and rots, rusts or is wasted as the recylcing plant can not handle the amount it receives.This fact causes people to be upset and then to junk what they have.

I have to confess that I probably wouldn't pick up a bottle in a public place because I would be worried with germs. I most definately would at work or somewhere I was fimilar with or had a sink available to wash my hands. I probably sound like a germ nut but you never know. I think when people are fimilar with an area or care about the appearance of a place they are more likely to pick it up. I did appreciate the cheers after the lady picked it up.

Excellent way to raise awareness to people who doesn't recycle or just ignore a plastic bottle in front of a recycling bin. It amazed me to see that it's such an simple task can be ignored, especially when the bin was right next to the bottle. It raised the question that are people just to lazy or is it human nature to mind our own affairs and walk away from things that doesn't pertain to us. In any case, it takes one person to make that difference and show everyone that it is THE normal thing to do and should become a habit rather than a chore.

Although these were designed specifically for GIS day during Geography Awareness Week, these 2 excellent map-based treasure hunts from ESRI are great any time of year.  The answer to the question will only pop up in you are zoomed in the the right region (SHIFT + Make a box = Zoom to area).  These links will take you to the World Cities quiz and also to the Mountains quiz.

Best way to challenge your brain to become more familiar with where places are within the world. Ranging from the most populous area in the world to where a historic city is.
