#GuardianiDellaCostaPerUnGiorno

In occasione della Giornata nazionale del Mare e della Cultura Marinara, il team diCosta Crociere Foundation ha lanciato la call-to-action #GuardianiDellaCostaPerUnGiorno e insieme a un gruppo di volontari di Costa Crociere ha pulito la spiaggia libera diGenova-Sturla.

Questa iniziativa, volta a sensibilizzare la comunità verso la salvaguardia del litorale italiano, rientra nell’ambito del programma “Guardiani della Costa”, un progetto di citizen science per la tutela delle coste italiane che Costa Crociere Foundation ha lanciato nel 2017, rivolto a studenti e insegnanti delle scuole superiori italiane. Il programma ha lo scopo di sensibilizzare — attraverso l’adozione di tratti di costa — gli studenti, i giovani e i cittadini alla fragile bellezza delle nostre coste, aumentando la consapevolezza sui problemi derivanti dall’aumento dei rifiuti, in particolare plastici, lungo il litorale, sulle spiagge e in mare.

Nell’attività di pulizia della spiaggia di Genova-Sturla è stato coinvolto anche il team Commerciale e marketing di Costa Crociere, che ha invitato gli agenti di viaggio di tutta Italia ad aderire a questa iniziativa, diventando a loro volta #GuardianiDellaCostaPerUnGiorno, con i propri collaboratori, clienti e famigliari, adottando e pulendo una spiaggia del proprio territorio.

#YoPorLosOcéanos

EDF de México, Meridian Institute and Packard Foundation are launching the # YoPorLosOcéanos campaign in the framework of World Oceans Day (June 8). The campaign is derived from our efforts last year to make the economic, social and environmental importance of the Mexican oceans visible, as well as to generate a public conversation about its sustainable use and conservation.
#YoPorLosOcéanos seeks to raise awareness about the relevance of the oceans, from the different sectors that depend on them. For this reason and following our commitment to the optimal use of our oceans, we have directed this campaign to public opinion, always taking into account reaching the key decision makers to amplify our objectives.
 
The activities of the campaign include the publication of audiovisual content to reinforce our messages, which is why we would appreciate supporting us to disseminate it in their social networks, with the entities and people they consider relevant to achieve the widest possible reach. For this, we share thislink where you will find a set of graphic contents of the campaign (images, videos, and infographics) accompanied by a file with suggested texts that can be published freely as of today. These will be updated to be able to echo until the World Oceans Day. Later on, we will announce a photography contest with the purpose of highlighting the relevance of the oceans in Mexico.
 
Likewise, we would appreciate being followed on the official social networks of the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram campaign.
 
We are very excited to continue making # YoPorLosOcéanos known and we would love to have your support!

Que até ausente soube cercar

A terra inteira com o seu abraço"

Fernando Pessoa in "Mensagem"

The end of the school year Is coming and at our school, Colégio José Álvaro Vidal, and that means it’s time to celebrate. This year our event is going to focus on three areas: the celebration of the 500th year anniversary of Magellan’s journey around the world, globalisation and sustainability. Our activities will bring together Dance, Art, Music and above all, awareness. We want to be plastic free, promoting a healthy live style and paying tribute to ancient tribes who knew and still know that Earth can teach us the most valuable lessons. If we can only respect it enough to listen.

Because the ocean is such an important part of our culture, we also want to celebrate World Oceans Day: we will have an exhibition with different sculptures depicting the many species endangered by the same plastic they are going to be built with (recycled plastic bottles, plastic bags and such recovered by our students: while cleaning the beach; brought from the recycling bins at home/school). This exhibit will be our small contribution to raising awareness to an issue so close to our hearts.

500 years have passed since the first time Magellan first set out on a vast, unknown ocean to explore a brand new world. We don’t have 500 years more to save it. Change is not only urgent, but inevitable.

In occasione delle celebrazioni per la “Giornata Mondiale degli Oceani 2019”, la Delegata al Mare del Comune di Napoli, dr.ssa Daniela Villani, con gli studenti del Liceo Scientifico “Galileo Galilei” di Napoli e gli esperti ricercatori dell’Istituto di Scienze Marine del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (ISMAR-CNR) di Napoli, discuteranno dei risultati conseguiti nel progetto di Alternanza Scuola Lavoro su tematiche di tutela della risorsa mare, con un Workshop dal titolo “Paesaggio marino-costiero: cultura e tutela”, martedì 4 giugno 2019 alle ore 11,30 in Sala Giunta a Palazzo San Giacomo.

Il Programma prevede due interventi di divulgazione scientifica da parte del personale dell’ISMAR-CNR sul concetto ed importanza del Paesaggio Geologico in ambiente marino-costiero, sia emerso (dr. Francesco Paolo Buonocunto) che sommerso (dr. Crescenzo Violante), che introdurranno ai lavori redatti dagli studenti a conclusione del percorso triennale, seguirà discussione su eventuali applicazioni sul territorio del progetto sviluppato.

Si proseguirà sabato 8 giugno dalle ore 10,00 alle 13,00 in Rotonda Diaz, con un info-point gestito dagli studenti del Liceo Scientifico al fine di condurre il cittadino in un viaggio alla scoperta del paesaggio napoletano dove il mare sarà il vero protagonista.

La prof.ssa Giovanna Longobardo, coordinatrice delle attività di ASL per il Liceo G. Galilei ribadisce l’opportunità che gli studenti delle 4 classi coinvolte hanno avuto nel triennio di attività di formazione con i ricercatori dell’ISMAR-CNR, di accrescere il proprio bagaglio di competenze in materia di lettura ambientale, tutela e prevenzione del rischio nella fascia marino-costiera, nonché ampliare la cultura del mare.

Il dr. Francesco Paolo Buonocunto, responsabile scientifico del progetto per l’ISMAR-CNR, ci tiene a sottolineare l’impegno profuso dagli studenti e dai tutor didattici nel percorso di alternanza ed invita tutti a partecipare al workshop e soprattutto alla dimostrazione pratica dell’8 giugno per apprezzare quanto sviluppato in termini progettuali. L’alternanza ha dato infatti l’opportunità di sviluppare un progetto di tutela e salvaguardia del territorio attraverso una lettura critica del paesaggio marino costiero, vero patrimonio culturale della città di Napoli.

WHEN: Campers should arrive by 8:00 a.m. (Monday - Friday), no earlier than 7:50 a.m. Camper pick-up is at 5:00 p.m., no later than 5:10 p.m. This is different from previous years in order to accomodate our working parents and guardians. Camp will officially begin at 8:00 a.m. inside the classroom where we will begin with warmup activities. Outdoor activities will begin at 9:00 a.m. (therefore it is strongly encouraged that your camper is here by that time). Wind-down activities will begin at 3:30 p.m.. You are of course welcome to pick up your camper anytime throughout the day however, all campers will be located at the GTM Research Reserve's Visitor Center after 3:30 p.m.

ADDITIONAL COMMON QUESTIONS

  • Due to the structure of activities and based on experience we try to stick to the age requirements. However, we'll permit campers that are posed to turn the minimum age within ONE MONTH after the camp start date. Meaning if you'd like your 6 year old to attend the 7-9yr camp then we'll allow it if they turn 7 within one month after the camp start date.
  • We will provide snacks throughout the day. The morning will consist of a healthy snack (fruit/nuts/grains) and the afternoon will usually consist of a popsicle (to help cool down).
  • Lunches - Parents/Guardians must provide a lunch for their campers. We try to encourage the campers to bring a litter-less lunch (lots of resuables). We will provide a water bottle and water throughout the day.
  • Campers must bring: insect repellent (strongly encouraged), sunscreen (strongly encouraged), towel, change of clothes, close-toed shoes (no flip flops), sunglasses, hat.
  • Your camper(s) will only be allowed to go home with people you have indicated on a list that will be sent around (via email) closer to the start of camp.
  • We usually work on the agenda up until the week before because there's lots of cool activities. We will send that around to registrants closer to the start of camp. Usually (because of the heat) we'll be inside in the morning, conducting experiments or working on projects and then outside in the afternoon (the breeze usually picks up by this time). Please see the notes under "WHEN" for additional information.
  • Please note the 7-9 year olds (gobies) and the 10-12 year olds (rays) will be in two separate camps and most likely not interact throughout the week.

REFUND POLICY: There are no full refunds. A 50% refund will be issued if you cancel 30 days prior to the start date the summer camp (Friday, May 10, 2019, 5:00PM EST). No refunds will be issued after this deadline.
