AppenninoLab is the project developed by Fondazione Edoardo Garrone for upper secondary schools with the goal of introducing the younger generations to a wide, precious range of opportunities that will allow them to actively build their own future.
PAST: THE CAMP
A one-week camp offering 30 students the opportunity to find out about the environmental, economic, social and cultural resources of the Apennines.
Camp participants were involved in an intense, engaging programme featuring a number of activities and topics: from mountain biking to kayaking, from economics to nature, all the way to marketing and the organisation of events at a local level. The presence of some leading experts also contributed to making the most passionate students aware of new employment opportunities.
PRESENT: LA GIORNATA DELL’APPENNINO (THE APPENINES’ DAY)
An educational project covering over 100 hours of activities, including classroom lessons and project works. An experience combining education and career guidance through frontal teaching as well as in-the-field practice, thereby allowing participants to learn about the local areas and communities and contribute to their valorisation.
Supported by 6 outstanding tutors, six classes from six different Genoese schools will be working together to create and host an “Apennines’ Day”, personally organising and managing a scattered event that will involve the local citizens and show the immense value of a mountain village.
