ESO’s 2nd grade Students learn about the natural wealth of Doñana and the need to harmonize development practices with respect for the environment.
Foundation Doñana 21, in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment of Andalusia, has launched the "classroom of Organic Agriculture in Doñana” in eight secondary schools in the Shire of Doñana.
This program aims to bring students from 2nd year of ESO's rich natural environment of the park focusing on the need for a development compatible with conservation, quality of life and the people of the region.
Being agriculture and tourism the main economic engines of Doñana, organic agriculture is proposed as a production system to develop, for the benefits it brings to the health, environment and regional economy.
The AlcapaRed environmental services company has been responsible for the design and implementation of workshops, with the advice and the contents provided by Doñana 21, which are divided into two sections. The first one tries to explain the functioning of ecosystems in the Park and the impacts of human activities upon them through the game of Pyramid food. The second section examines the environmental, social and economic region of Doñana for different segments of the population: farmers/as, tourists, environmentalists and politicians as. It has designed a brochure as a "treasure map" looks at the most representative areas of the county identifying these values.
