Increasing the awareness and raising the attention on the environmental themes as well as the important role of the Protected Areas as far as the conservation of the natural resources and of the places culture is the main goal the Gola del Furlo State Natural Reserve intends to satisfy with this new environmental education project, which has been planned on purpose for the new school year. Backed up by its role as Territorial Laboratory of the Infea Marche System (which is a territorial coordination unit on the priority themes connected with the sustainable development education) and in tune with the institutional role of the Protected Areas - which are more and more engaged in the planning and realization of initiatives focusing on the respect of diversity and on the principles of inclusion and integration - the education project "A Scuola nella Riserva" (At School in the Reserve) is divided into two sub-projects:
The projects will be developed during the period between February and May, and they provide the realization of different didactic-educational programs to be carried out in the classroom and across the territory with the help of operators specialized in the naturalistic as well as educational sector.
From all these works several materials may originate (drawings, written works, powerpoint presentations) that will be useful to organize an exhibition in the Museum of the Territory and to realize a publication in collaboration with the schools taking part in the project. Some of these works may be also included in the website of the Furlo Reserve under the section entitled "Emozioni di Furlo: l'area protetta vista e presentata dagli studenti ad altri studenti" (Furlo Emotions: the protected area as it is seen and presented by pupils to other pupils).
The activities will be developed according to the following general goals:
We are considering the possibility to realize even this year a 3-days stay for the secundary schools as a reward for the three projects, to be agreed with teachers.
