It’s Christmas time:
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Erasmus goes on…
Eco-friendly Christmas ornaments
Every year Alighieri-Tanzi school in Mola di Bari (Italy) organizes school solidarity markets in order to improve solidarity in students and sustain humanitarian projects in the world. This year students and their families made Christmas decorations and crafts to support a tree planting program in Zimbabwe.
A group of students also decided to make eco-friendly Christmas ornaments reusing different materials. Old books, waste paper and recycled plastic bottles became fantastic Christmas trees and decorations for our school. This activity was really challenging: first of all students collected different materials, after they plan their own project and finally they tried to create their new decoration. Reusing paper and plastic they could experience different activities without wasting any materials.
This activity was really exciting!!!!
Here are some Christmas crafts and a tutorial.

Mail art and water footprint
Erasmus goes on…
Italian students from “Alighieri-Tanzi” school in Mola di Bari had the opportunity to stress the importance of water resources and the need to save water, sending mails to Papa Francesco, to the Italian President, Sergio Mattarella, and to many important Italian politicians.
To make their postal cards students went to the National Library in Bari, where they met students from other schools and artists-tutors from the Academy of fine Arts who gave them the opportunity to have a great time experiencing pop up and mail art techniques. To make their pop up they used different kind of materials such as recycled paper.
Some of their creations were really fantastic!
Here are the most significant moments of this activity:

This way the Erasmus goes on and our students take more consciousness of the importance of water resources.

Eco-tourists working in order to save our planet – Italy
A group of students from “Alighieri-Tanzi” school had a great time becoming eco-tourists in their town: Mola. This experience gave them the opportunity to discover the importance of the posidonia oceanica and develop awareness on local environment.
Here are the most significant moments of this experience:
Students’ activities started with a lesson on the importance of posidonia for our marine-coastal ecosystem. The lesson was organized by a group of students from the secondary school who had been working on this subject for different months. They also showed some handicraft products made by posidonia and its use in agriculture.
At the end of the lesson, the secondary students arranged a guided tour in order show our students how to preserve the posidonia on the coast. They collected plastic waste and they organized some games such as posidonia basket.
At the end of these activities students enjoyed a delicious snack nearby the sea.
Now student’s perception of this question has completely changed: posidonia is no longer considered as a waste but as a resource.
Here is the 1o rules to follow for the correct management of posidonia residues:

Students of the 4th Primary School of Nea Smyrni are today (April 6) mobilizing behind Peace and Sport’s #WhiteCard campaign as they celebrate the International Day of Sport Development and Peace. This campaign invites people to take pictures of themselves with white cards, since the white color represents peace, before sharing them on social media. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage International Federations, athletes, governments etc to develop sport-based initiatives around the IDSDP.
We also have to remark that the UN established the celebration of the specific International Day (IDSDP) as they recognize the contribution of sport and physical activity to education, human development, healthy lifestyles and a peaceful world.
