Following the project “Heróis de toda a espécie”, REN joined the Natural.PT, a ICNF project (Nature Conservation Institute and Forestry).
“Heróis de toda a espécie” is a REN initiative, which has the support of ICNF and General Directorate of Education. This is a pedagogical initiative that aims to sensitize communities to the protection of biodiversity, preservation of the Portuguese forest and conservation of animal and plant species threatened or endangered.
“Heróis de toda a espécie” is aimed at children from the 3rd and 4th years of the 1st cycle of elementary education and is designed to complement the school curriculum. With an interactive and dynamic approach promotes environmental awareness and sense of responsibility amongst the young. The program will start with the beginning of the school year in September.
To facilitate access to all content, it was created a website, available in www.heroisdetodaaespecie.pt in which, in addition to materials for use in the classroom, are available educational games, trivia and news. The contents were developed by Bio3, Consulai and also with technical support from Quercus.
