They propose creative methods to get deep into the matter. They will use games as a knowledge tool. They will do urban and rural trekking, there will be seminars, debates and workshops. They will constantly analyze what has been learned through systematic reflections. The workshops will be done with the help of some experts and ourselves.
The aim of this project is to promote a better understanding of the diversity of European and global citizenship in those who will participate in it, putting in value the natural heritage shared by all Europeans. Thus, we will value the local natural heritage, the landscape and the effect of human presence. We want to see the influence this has had on us and us.
