Our event is aimed at learning the principles of Ocean Literacy by means of a fieldwork activity on the small beach of a Natura 2000 protected area (coastal wetland) at the extreme Northern corner of the Mediterranean Sea.
A group of 7th grade students will make observations on natural and man-made features, discovering landscape evolution in the last century in an area affected by remediation and then returning to wilderness.
Students will analyze water from a barrier-spring river and from the sea, drawing conclusions about the hydrology of the area and pollution from agriculture and human settlements.
At the end of the activity students will be questioned about "the ocean's influence on them and their influence on the ocean" eliciting their proposals for a sustainable use of land and sea.
