OVERVIEW

Laboratory activities are designed in order to develop conscious behaviors in the relationship between man and nature

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The lab will bring students closer to the concepts of sustainability and sustainable education through specific activities that, by addressing some of the issues with a direct relationship with the Ligurian territory, will foster the development of a personal conscience and the commitment to adopt conscious behaviors. This will promote the transposition of sustainability concepts into the educational processes in primary and secondary schools, where students will be professionally involved.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The impact of the transposition of the concept of sustainability into school teaching will be explored. The students will be able to fully understand the characteristics of the teaching when dealing with the sustainability concept. These goals will also be pursued through direct interaction with significant territorial realities.
