The Way to Sustainability
Over the years the CEA Ecotur proposed several environmental education projects for schools, involving dozens of institutions of all levels (early childhood, primary school, secondary school degree, secondary school degree) and thousands of students.
We have promoted educational projects, which involve a series of meetings in the classroom and outdoors and residential projects which are real full-immersion, identifying in them the possibility of an effective and stimulating training and education. In the design and implementation of our educational courses you have chosen to give prominence to the space and experience, perception of nature, then the activities of discovery.

In particular, it has sought to stimulate students' curiosity and to facilitate the discovery of the complexity of trying to convey that in nature everything is connected, that biological diversity is a rich asset and that we all have a responsibility to leave a legacy for future generations.
