The 2030 Agenda is the agreement signed in 2015 by 193 UN countries which aims to protect the planet and the well-being of its inhabitants through an ambitious action programme made up of 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets or milestones.
For five years, the secondary school “Giotto Ulivi” of Borgo San Lorenzo (FI) has annually dedicated a day to the topics of the 2030 Agenda. This year, the initiative will be held on Tuesday 6 June, with a rich programme of meetings, workshops and debates on issues related to sustainability.
After the institutional greetings (10 am), the air quality monitoring station, installed thanks to the collaboration with the CNR-IBE, will be inaugurated. Starting from 8 am up to 1 pm, experts, professionals and teachers will animate workshops aimed at the students of the Institute and lower secondary schools, dedicated to various topics: artificial intelligence, ecotoxicology, alternative energies, natural antibiotics, poverty and environmental crisis, “Good Food” (discover the complete programme here).
In the afternoon, starting at 1 pm there will be training, recreational and motor activities as well as voluntary work open to all. Among the many initiatives, we point out the event “Laboratori del Sapere Scientifico” at 3.30 pm, a presentation of the methodology and the related educational paths that will be presented by INDIRE researchers Serena Goracci and Loredana Camizzi.
Not to be missed, at 5pm, is the round table dedicated to Don Milani on the occasion of the centenary of his birth, an opportunity to talk about the territory as a learning environment and the educational avant-garde role of the Barbiana school. Among others, the president of INDIRE Cristina Grieco will intervene.
