  • Description: The project aims at promoting cooperation among primary education institutes in the field of environmental education. These initiatives are geared towards a fuller understanding of the importance of waste recycling and selective waste collection. It is intended to raise awareness towards environmental issues and at the same time as an opportunity for cooperation among Italian and Slovenian schools to promote European integration. Its educational value lies in the activities identified and proposed by all project partners and translates into the notions that the students acquire to become European citizens. It aims at shaping an eco-friendly conscience: identifying the materials of which most of the things we use are made, understanding that raw materials are depletable, learning the decomposing time of several materials, understanding the importance of recycling and selective waste collection, learning the recycling phases of several materials and getting used to correctly selecting materials for disposal. Envisaged activities include: meetings and opportunities to exchange good practices and experiences among teachers and pupils of participating schools; class workshops on the reuse of materials; participation to the initiative “M’illumino d’immenso”; visit to the salt pits and museums of Pirano; the creation of an eco-symbol to encourage eco-friendly habits; production of informational literature; project closing to be held on May 9-13 2008 at Dolina, in the context of the Festival of Majenca.
