The LIFE Perdix course for teachers and educators on the theme “Biodiversity and Territory” is about to end, now in its second edition and divided into in-depth webinars and activities carried out by teachers in the classrooms. A formula that pleases, because it allows you to experiment with stimulating contents, tools and educational proposals immediately with the students.

There are about 70 participants, teachers of primary and secondary schools of 1st and 2nd grade. The refresher lessons addressed the issues of biodiversity protection and the main causes that determine its loss and reduction and suggested methodologies and tools for involving students. A particularly interesting meeting – because it was able to highlight the importance of European LIFE projects – examined four case studies. These are four LIFE projects of extraordinary scientific value, aimed at achieving concrete improvement results: first of all the Life Perdix project, with the reintroduction into nature of a subspecies declared extinct, the Italian partridge, but also the LifeGreen4Blue project which in Emilia Romagna it is dealing with the quality of reclamation channels and the fight against alien species; Life Blue Lakes, which monitors microplastic pollution in some Italian and German lakes and finally the Life Terra project, aimed at planting plants to combat climate change. All scientific stimuli that often do not reach schools and which instead have been welcomed with great interest by teachers, precisely because they are concrete cases and examples of innovative projects.

The course is coordinated by Legambiente Scuola e Formazione, specialized in education and training and recognized by the Ministry of Education as a training institution. The teaching and educational methodologies refer to the philosophy of the association, which implies scientific knowledge of the problems and the incentive to act in the territories to start concrete experiences capable of changing habits and activating good practices.

The last phase of Life Perdix’s educational proposals for the 2022/2023 school year is now opening: the contest “Rediscovering beauty in rarity”, open to all primary and secondary schools of 1st and 2nd grade nationwide . The teachers will propose to their students the creation of a communication product: a poster (primary and 1st grade secondary school classes) and a video spot (2nd grade secondary school) on the importance of safeguarding biodiversity or on the Life Perdix project . Up for grabs for each school order is a prize in purchase vouchers of €300.

It is possible to participate by registering the class for the contest by 5 April 2023.
