EDUCATING IN THE BIOSPHERE

After the declaration of the territory as a Biosphere Reserve, there was a concern within the Reserve about how to approach environmental education in this territory in a comprehensive way, about how to make visible @dito declaration by UNESCO and its opportunities among the population, as well how to transfer the values of the Biosphere Reserves to the population and make it known, with the aim of ensuring the construction of a participatory Biosphere Reserve in which society, and especially young people, are the basic pillar on which to settle.

 

This program of activities to be developed with the school community, is presented as a non-formal learning initiative in different fields, closely connected with the objectives of the Biosphere Reserve, in order to stimulate creativity and youth potential in the processes of analysis and practical application of the knowledge acquired, to get involved in a sustainable space in terms of innovation and social welfare.
