Mom, I'll save the planet! When the school educates to respect the environment with the imagination
What relationship do your children have with nature? Today, the interest in ecological and environmental sustainability issues is fortunately increasing, thanks also to the commitment of public figures and concrete initiatives that aim to stir public opinion and make it increasingly sensitive to the issue. One of the ways to succeed is precisely to talk to the little ones - future generations of the planet - and get them used to developing an ethical awareness of the environment and its protection right away. Not only will they therefore love nature but they will also learn to take care of it and defend it.
Living in contact with nature, after all, brings proven benefits to both physical and mental health, and it is essential that today children - less and less accustomed to contact with greenery - are educated to respect the environment and understand the importance of its protection. for their own future. The school plays a primary role in "helping the very young to become aware citizens, capable of making responsible decisions for the well-being of the planet.
Starting from these considerations, Conad, with the precious collaboration of the WWF, has conceived the educational project "Writers of the Class - Save the planet", intended for all primary and lower secondary school classes, inviting them to participate in the fifth edition. of the literary competition "Writers of Class", whose theme this year will be precisely "Save the planet." A fun and stimulating way to bring children closer to some of the most urgent environmental problems.

In defense of bees in the WWF Oasis!
Conad has chosen to stimulate young students to learn not only to know the environment, but also to protect it and feel responsible for its health, making appropriate choices.
