At School in the Parks between Nature and History 2018-2019

An extraordinary school trip

Environmental education for schools represents one of the most important aspects of the activities carried out by Parchi della Val di Cornia SpA. The historical-landscape heritage of the park system represents a valid didactic instrument for schools. The variety of the environments and the richness of the historical evidences characterizing the area make Val di Cornia parks an interesting outdoor workshop where it is possible to learn and experiment through interdisciplinary activities.

The main educational goals are the following:
- knowledge of the historical-archaeological heritage, in order to promote the sense of identity and, as a consequence, to sensitize to the safeguard of the cultural heritage;
- knowledge of the natural resources, also considering the availability of raw materials and their exploitation by men;
- experiments linked to ancient production, to discover the techniques that have changed the relationship between environment, man, and work, shaping the economic history of this territory;
- acquisition of the fundamental principles and methodologies of scientific research (historical, archaeological, geological, and naturalistic research).
