Invitation for the Italian conference

By Pierluigi Monsignori
2017-04-28 in Italy

Plastic Food to Plastic Minds

3 - 4  may 2017 at  Perugia – Italy

 Disability seen as a resource for teaching the reduction of waste production

INVITATION

This is an invitation to expression of interest in the Western and Southern  Europe Conference taking place in Perugia, Italy,  3-4 May  2017.

 

The conference has got 4 topics :

 

  • Presentation of UUD Erasmus+ Elearning Platform and explain the project  
  • A contact seminar for organizations from Western and Southern Europe in view of the ErasmusPlus deadline 2018.
  • Local experience : "The old time's snack" retrives traditions of the past, it makes us free from waste; a new consciousness that makes us regain possession of old values now abandoned. This consideration led to the idea of involving the children of an entire school to create a concrete link between past and future. For this we have explained the children what was the snack of our grandparents, which was back then a need. A slice of bread, spread with half a tomato and seasoned with our extra virgin olive oil and salt. The recovery of this snack binds us to the recovery of a tradition, of a moment that expands over time and which does not create waste. The snack becomes genuine and healthy, not just good; it is no longer an anonymous snack wrapped in many layers of packaging : it’s healthier for us and for the environment.
  • Education: Plastic Food to Plastic Minds, Disability seen as a resource for teaching the reduction of  waste production

 

For information about  the UUD project, please  follow the link to www.plasticsfree.eu.

To register, please send an expression of interest letter, a project idea connected to the UUD theme included.  The deadline for expression of interest is 30 april 2017.
