About the project

Protecting the environment means preserving the survival and future of humanity. The environment is our source of food and drinking water. The air is our source of oxygen. The climate allows our survival while biodiversity is a potential reservoir of medicine. Preserving the environment is therefore a question of survival. For these reasons, through our project we aim at making our students aware of the problems linked to the environment and then propose small actions to modify current behavior. Five educational establishments coming from geographically different countries have agreed to work together because we think that it is essential that children and adolescents explore their environment first in order to know it better. At the same time it is also essential that they acquire relevant knowledge in order to understand it. These discoveries and the newly – acquired knowledge will subsequently enable students to determine their attitudes and behavior.

  

The project will include specific activities on the themes of nature and natural phenomena, the living environment and pollution. Our main goal is to broaden our minds with regards to certain ecological aspects and why not even inspire our students to take action to save nature.

  

Moreover, we will suggest actions to be taken to reduce the negative impact the sectors of home, transport, even food have on the environment. We will offer a range of activities to make students, parents and teachers aware of everyday actions that can be taken to reduce pollution. Further to these, we will study the volcanic phenomenon and its negative effects on the inhabitants of the region. We will also conduct experiments with water to demonstrate the existence of some dangerous molecules, thus highlighting the importance of paying more attention to our health and the protection of the environment. Yet, we will examine coastal areas at risk threatened by waste or the invasion of tourists. Finally, we will make an inventory and demonstrate specimens of local secular trees.

    

Protecting the environment means protecting our source of food and drinking water. It means preserving the quality of the air we breathe and the biodiversity we need to survive. Protecting the environment concerns all of us! We must realize and make everyone aware of the importance of conserving the environment and allowing it to survive if we want to live healthily in it. Humans do not live alone and isolated. They live in an environment on which they are totally dependent on. However, living in the city, surrounded by technology, often makes us forget it. If we continue contaminating our environment, it will quickly remind us of our dependence on it. To ensure the survival and therefore the future of humanity, it is essential to protect the environment today!
