Every day the news about the efforts to have a better environment and self-sustainable spaces become more daily, this time it is about the realization of an interactive map with all the facilities that develop as programs and activities related to environmental education or the dissemination of heritage in the town of Aragon Spain.
This initiative is an Aragonese Strategy for Environmental Education, which is nothing more than a tool that is part of the new and revolutionary digital platform called Horizon 2030 (EAREA-2030), which will make Aragon the pioneer of the autonomous communities that will have a mapping of this type.
The main objective is to be able to count with sites of environmental interest and that map is being continuously updated for the enjoyment of people interested in the preservation of the environment. At the moment there are 484 facilities, distributed throughout the Aragonese province.
It is important to mention that there are spaces such as nature classrooms or farm schools, museums, interpretation centers, ENP information points, resource, training and research centers, infrastructure of environmental services and routes and sites of interest.
The general director of Climate Change and Environmental Education of the Government of Aragón, Marta de Santos, explained that this tool was created as a digital reference center for environmental education in the autonomous community, "becoming a powerful channel for dissemination and two-way communication, in real time, for all those with an interest in the subject".
He also pointed out that this initiative was created with the intention of promoting the sensitization and awareness of the citizenship, starting with Aragonese, but that it can be expanded to all parts of the world, since it must be achieved and conscious and critical participation in the processes of industries and decision making related to environmental problems.
With this reciprocity, the web seeks to feed from the information contributions made by individuals or companies, who can send the updates they deem appropriate to nourish the map.
On the platform you can get resources of environmental materials of different themes and formats, as well as multimedia documentaries, with links to download useful information to develop or carry out an activity on information, awareness or environmental education.
There is also a news section with up-to-date information on events such as workshops, seminars, courses, exhibitions, etc., which may be useful for people or professionals related to the environment and environmental education.
