Together for the environment and nature

Together for the environment and nature
On 5 June, on the occasion of the “World Environment Day”, our school, in relation to the activity of the Erasmus plus project “SMART: Science Meets Art”, raised students awareness (after the LegaAmbiente and SMART DAY initiatives) to problems relating to global warming by connecting meteorology, nature and art. Through this project the students made videos using photos of different landscapes (sunrises and sunsets) to make them aware of the importance of the ecosystem.

Today we found only plastic stuff and part of clothes in our playground.

They decided to represent on the stage the myth of Cerere and Proserpina, typically Sicilian, that explains why in Sicily there are six months of good weather.
