The CHD has invested more than 3.6 million euros in riverbed renaturation and environmental education activities aimed at both the general public and the school population.
The educational program of the LIFE IP-Duero project, led by the Duero Hydrographic Confederation (CHD), will reach this year more than 600 students of pre-school, primary and secondary education in the provinces of Avila, Salamanca and Valladolid. The objective this year is to raise awareness among schoolchildren about the impacts of climate change on water resources in general and, specifically, within the LIFE IP-Duero territory, located in the area of the Medina del Campo aquifer.
The president of the CHD, María Jesús Lafuente, accompanied by the subdelegate of the Government in Valladolid, Alicia Villar, participated today in the Alejandría Secondary School, in Tordesillas (Valladolid), in the activities developed with the students of 2nd ESO within the environmental program LIFE IP-Duero.
The program includes a talk reflecting on our model of inhabiting the planet, and the necessary awareness to act in our daily environment in favor of sustainable development. An activity that is complemented with an exhibition under the slogan “Climate Change and Water”, which serves as work material for all students of the ESO stage and even the whole center.
