The school activities organized by the Park play an important role in the education of students and citizens helping to develop responsible behavior and active defense of the environmental heritage. In accordance with the Program Agreement between the Italian Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Education regarding information and environmental education, the Park offers visits, activities, nature workshops, and school camps.
Schools can use the protected area as an open air science lab, an experience which can be integrated with specific activities and with support activities for teachers. The educational activities of Alpi Marittime Park, dedicated to schools and groups of young people, are the result of over a decade of experience. They are characterized by an interactive multi-sensory and interdisciplinary approach. Notions and skills essential for learning how to live in harmony with nature and the territory are conveyed using research activities combining the dimensions of doing and discovering. The packages on offer have been elaborated by the Park's education officer and other staff working with educational activities: the staff has attended training and refresher courses, at home and abroad. Each activity is carried out by the Park Tour Guides, professionals enrolled in the list of Accompagnatori Naturalistici della Provincia di Cuneo according to L. R. 33/01. Every year they attend refresher and specialization courses and collaborate with the Park.
