HOW DID ALL BEGIN?
With this project we intended to know and analyze two different ecosystems: the area of Torino and Piamonte, in the North of Italy and a part of the Costa Blanca, located in the Spanish southeast, Torrevieja, Alicante province.
For doing so, both high schools have carried out a series of activities ( online connections, blogs, podcasts, task based projects, etc) which are necessary for students to have a knowledge and a critical vision of the environmental management as well as the most important environmental problems that affect us as individuals. So that, they can try to make changes to stop the pollution that is producing global warming on our planet.
The aims of the project are:
- Study and evaluate how the industrial and economic activities of each area influence their contamination.
- Promote the internationalization of our educational communities.
- Compare the environmental problems of each area and agree on whether the solutions to be adopted would be similar or different.
- Raise students' awareness of how our daily habits influence pollution and, as a consequence, climate change.
- Know and value the environmental management in each area.
- Promote activities that bring students closer to the close environment that surrounds them.
- Try to minimize the impact of our actions, both as individuals and as a community, on our closest ecosystems, and by extension to our planet.
- Improvement of the communication skills of the participants.
Fundamental to this change is the awareness and dissemination of projects like ours. Hence, our goal is to be able to reach the largest number of people.
Carrying out this project from home and in the current situation has been an experience and a challenge full of obstacles and difficulties that in the end we have managed to overcome.
