Niagara in the high schools, to promote the preservation of natural resources among young people
On May 09, our team presented the Niagara project to the teachers and about one hundred and fifty students attending the high school Industrial Technical Institute (ITIS Leonardo da Vinci) in Parma, for mechanical, biotechnological and electronic experts.
The initiative is part of the so called “School/Job Alternation” which aims to facilitate the meeting between the school and business needs of companies and to motivate and guide young people, spreading the culture of work.
During the meeting, our team introduced the objectives and outcomes of the project as well as the premises from which it originated (i.e. the increasing commitment of companies and institutions to safeguard water resources, both from a qualitative and quantitative point of view). They also presented the innovative features, which led this project to the attention and the support of the European Union.
