D.2. Specific campaign directed at schools and youth associations

This environmental education campaign is directed at schools and youth groups in the municipalities coming within the scope of the project:

  • Educational program for the 2nd and 3rd cycles of primary school and the 1st and 2nd cycles of secondary school: educational material is to be prepared (teaching guide, field book, field visits, support materials …). The program is annual and offers schoolchildren and teachers a classroom work session and field visits (to a section of the river in the corresponding locality).
  • Leisure program directed at youth groups: this is a more recreational variant of the educational program , directed at the formal education sector, which aims to make young people aware of the project objectives and actions, in their leisure time.

The two programs are to be complemented with the organisation of an "Annual photo contest" and an "Annual painting contest" on the project themes. These events are open to all the local actors involved in LIFE (organisation, exhibition in each municipality, jury, material, prizes …)

The project objectives are novel and represent an important change with regard to the way all river-related matters have been managed over the last few decades. For this reason, it is essential that all sections of society should take part in the project execution and outcomes (those people managing it now and those who will do so in the future). Furthermore, the raising the awareness of schoolchildren (particularly in environmental matters) is then extended to the family environment, and it therefore serves to reinforce the communication objectives of the project itself.

During this campaign, there is an expected participation of more than 1000 schoolchildren from the local schools in each school year, and 200 from youth groups.
