“Our Future is Green” Day in Bardenas Reales, Valtierra
The Environmental Photography Workshop “Our Future is Green” took place in March, as part of the Social and Environmental Cooperation Agreement between Renovalia and Valtierra’s Town Council.
The workshop was developed in several natural areas at the Bardenas Reales site and it was attended by young students from Valtierra’s school.
It was led by a professional photographer and the objective was to get children closer to nature through a didactic teaching and to highlight environmental values of their surroundings. At the same time they were taught to explore links between art and nature.
Through a friendly and funny tour, the photographer explained some basic techniques so students could take themselves beautiful pictures of the natural environment.
Finally, within Renovalia’s project “Our Future is Green. Educating for environmental awareness”, the group visited Renovalia’s PV plant in Valtierra, where they learned about renewable sources of energy and their benfits in environment preservation.
“Educating for environmental awareness”
We believe that education is a key factor in the fight against climate change. Renovalia has set a goal to increase awareness of environmental issues and to fight against climate change in all social actions undertaken in the communities in which it is present.
To achieve this we educate children in the importance of protecting our planet. For this purpose we have designed “Our Future is Green”, a project focused in educational activities and awareness raising campaigns to protect the environment.
Among overall objectives we could highlight the following:
- To combat climate change through educational actions.
- To increase the awareness about environmental issues of all people involved in our CSR programmes.
- To inform about current environmental problems and the need to combat these.
- To educate on the environmental problems of the world and increase awareness of the actions to be carried out to ensure a better future worldwide.
