The public attending the PirosLife Technical Conference. Bear and Primary Sector, held in Barcelona at the headquarters of the Department of Territory and Sustainability of the Generalitat de Catalunya, was able to test the educational suitcases destined to make known the brown bear and its environment to the children of the Pyrenean schools.
Thus, technicians and directors of the PirosLife project enjoyed the experience of knowing the plantigrade and its habitat with the five senses through the games and activities that bring together the educational suitcases, which were presented by Sofia Isus, responsible for the educational PirosLife, and Director of the Chair of Education and Intangible Heritage of the Pyrenees of the University of Lleida.
According to the director, the objective of the educational suitcases is "to approach the reality and to reflect with the students on what is happening in their social reality". In this sense, Isus appealed to a greater participation in the elaboration of the didactic materials of the educational suitcases, to have a wider representation of the Pyrenean environment, and thus, to be able to create a more global awareness of the environment to the students, which will become the future managers of this species, of sustainability and the natural environment.
Sofia Isus also expressed the will of the Chair to develop this project to reach all Catalan populations and, the reality that the educational initiative PirosLife is one of the most successful actions of the Life project.
The day also had the participation of members of the Department of Territory and Sustainability of the Generalitat, project technicians, members of the Fundación Oso Pardo, and with the intervention of the head of networks of the European project PirosLife, Marcela Andreu.
