Agriculture Cieza celebrated World Day of Environmental Education with itineraries and workshops for adults (26/01/2009)

The Ministry of Agriculture and Water today celebrated the World Day of Environmental Education in the Hall of Nature 'The Watchtower', in Cieza, with a wide dynamic program of activities which involved 32 people between 20 and 40, belonging to the Workshop on Employment of the local council.

According to the director general of Natural Heritage and Biodiversity, Pablo Fernández, "Environmental Education must be present in all areas of society and to involve students and adults in small daily actions for the environment."

In this regard he added that "the program of the Network of Nature's Classroom this year includes group activities for adults" and recalled that in 2008 broke attendance records with 41,000 students across the region.

Classrooms Network of Nature contains two key objectives, according to Fernandez, "provide a permanent educational resource to the school community and maintain an open line of interpretation to improve the management of protected natural areas of our Community."

The activities carried out today were designed specifically for adults with the aim of achieving greater environmental awareness.

The day began with an interpretive path through the garden of the Hall of Nature 'The Watchtower', followed by a walk around the river Segura, to know the riparian forest, aquatic ecosystem values and wealth of flora and fauna.

Along the path environmental educators organized various games for the interpretation of the environment with the use of mime and other resources.

This was followed by a guided tour of Theodore Mill, to make known the history of this landmark and the various processes developed for flour.

The tour finishes with another visit to the ditch 'Andelman' symbol and relic closely linked to the history of Cieza.


The day ended with the completion of two environmental education workshops: 'The natural pharmacy', dedicated to the use of herbs such as rosemary to produce alcohol and other healing remedies, and 'The three Rs' (reduce, reuse and recycle) dedicated to environmental problems generated by the production of waste that included crafts based on the reuse of waste products.
