In May 2019 children, mayors and local authorities joined an excursion to the toad nature trail “Bufo Bufo” in Sicily.
Schoolchildren of EUKI project Frutti per la Biosfera in Sicily visited two farms and a small museum to learn more about regional food.
Frutti per la Biosfera trains Sicilian students through practical activities such as garden projects and farm visits. The video shows a visit to an ecological farm in Bronte.
School classes around Mount Etna opened the second phase of the project ‘Frutti per la Biosfera’ and planted vegetables in the school garden.
Sicilian schoolchildren planted 2,497 trees as part of the “Boschi per la Biosfera – Forests for the Biosphere” project.
The new EUKI project Frutti per la Biosfera promotes environmental education, climate action and regional and seasonal food in Sicily.
The project addresses the important role of food in climate change. It promotes vegetarian, seasonal, regional and organic foods through environmental education in schools, and also supports farmers in selling their products locally.
With “Boschi per la Biosfera”, local schoolchildren will be educated and encouraged to directly participate in reforestation efforts.
