    COLLABORATION PROJECT FOR SCHOOLS 2021

FIGHT AGAINST DESERTIFICATION, IMPORTANCE OF ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE AND ROLE OF BIODIVERSITY

 

 
  The Desert-Adapt project proposes a training activity for schools to share knowledge and sustainability objectives with children and teachers. Students will face the theme of climate change and desertification, ecosystem services and the fundamental role of biodiversity.  
  Children will contribute to the protection of biodiversity by building and setting up shelters for wild pollinating insects, which are essential for safeguarding the environment, becoming themselves testimonials of sustainability.

 

The hours of commitment foreseen are:

  • 4-6 hours of frontal lessons for the 3 lessons.
  • 6-8 hours of work for the students to collect materials and build hotels to be managed as any homework.
  • 2 hours to create a dossier with photos and a small description of the material placed in the field.

Teaching materials to teachers, i.e. Power Point lessons, a small descriptive video to build shelters, support material about Desert-Adapt, will be provided.
