"Poletje ob Soči" Summer School July-August 2014
"Poletje ob Soči" Summer School July-August 2014, which in the period from June 30th to August 22nd has attracted between 250-300 Elementary School children from Slovenia, Italy and Bosnia and Herzegovina this year, has refreshed its repertoar with DeFishGear related activities for children.
DeFishGear project partner (University of Nova Gorica) introduced daily "Ecological Minutes" - interactive, educational and amusing activity during which children had the opportunity to learn something new and exciting about the wonderful world of nature and environmental protection.
The highlight of this year's Summer School was definitely marine litter pollution with the emphasis on the impact of plastic pollution on soils, surface waters, seas, oceans and marine organisms (fish, turtles and sea birds). The overarching activity, which will bind all the environmental protection awareness raising activities, including DeFishGear related activities within the Summer School, will be the Art Competition “The Story of a Plastic Bag”, where the best drawings will become illustrations for the children story book.
