Summary of the project
The “CLIMA LIQUIDO” project, proposed by Verdeacqua scs Impresa Sociale, in collaboration with the Proteus Association and developed thanks to the support of Ocean Reef Italia and Metropolitana Milanese, plans to involve the schools of the Province of Milan, starting a dialogue with field researchers on climate change and water issues. Through 4 face-to-face meetings also available in streaming, the project aims at putting into communication the classes with biologists immersed underwater (lakes and sea). The objective is to contribute to raise awareness on the key role of climate change on the water resources, geology and biology. The idea is innovative both in terms of relationships (students / researchers), which should be encouraged also in terms of allowing youth to reflect on their future careers, and of methodology (video underwater connections) thanks to the use of cutting-edge technologies in communication and in conducting field research.
- 400 high-school students
- 200 teachers
- The number of high-school students can reach 1.000 thank to the online resources
The Coronavirus emergency slowed down the planned activities, imposing a suspension of connections and a reshaping of the work agreed with the classes, 5 video connections took place entirely (both in Centrale dell’Acqua and online) with a participation of 1.907 students.
The final phase of the project provided for the direct involvement of the students (250) and the production, on their part, of materials that effectively highlighted the opinions, expectations and conclusions of girls and boys of the same age, on issues related to climate change.
The results exceeded expectations in terms of responses and the quality of the final work. The material, entirely created by the students, was then published on the reference site and made available to other schools and the public.
