The project Life SEPOSSO, “Supporting Environmental governance for the POSidonia oceanica Sustainable transplanting Operations”, carried out with the contribution of the European Commission, aims to improve the Italian Governance of the Posidonia oceanica transplants, marine habitat priority 1120* sensu Habitat Directive (1992/43/EEC), implemented to compensate the damages caused by coastal works and infrastructures. The project is based on the cooperation among numerous stakeholders, which will contribute to design and apply good practices and innovative software tools for improving the effectiveness of planning and control of transplantation activities. This will contribute to the implementation of European environmental legislation (EIA-2014/52/EU and MSP-2014/89/EU) and to raise awareness on the importance and respect of the P. oceanica prairies and of the Natura 2000 marine sites.
Educational Kit Life SEPOSSO
After 2 years of meetings, lessons, games and exchanges with over 1500 kids, we decided to collect the materials and experiences produced to date and make them available to everyone. This is how the Life SEPOSSO Educational Kit was created. You can download it from here: DOWNLOAD EDUCATIONAL KIT
The project, among its multiple objectives, is to make citizens of all ages aware of the importance and respect of the Posidonia oceanica meadows, marine sites belonging to the Natura 2000 Network, and has therefore created this new educational tool for children of primary and secondary school.
The educational kit (in Italian only, for the moment) is organized in 7 modules. The teaching activities included in each module are lectures, videos, group games and skills that will allow children to discover what Posidonia oceanica is, what role it plays in the coastal marine environment, what is threatening it and what can be done do to protect it.
Learning how to protect the environment can also be fun!
