Regionale competition dedicated to primary schools ONCE UPON A LEAF” – 17th edition

The initiative, thought up by Robertino Perfetti, president of the Association SpazioAmbiente has been presented in the ‘Regione Offices’ in the presence of all the partners.

“This is the strength of the competition – explained Robertino Perfetti – to have created valid partnerships, a large virtuous network between private subjects and institutions that support us with enthusiasm and that collaborates with a strong patronage and proactive spirit. And every year the competition is enriched with new subjects, this year we are with the Regione Marche – Councillor of the Environment, the University of Macerata, Legambiente Marche, Council of Ancona – Councillor of Culture, ELI – La Spiga – PLAN edizioni, CLEMENTONI, RAINBOW, PULI ECOL Recuperi, GARBAGE group and many more, for a great project as well as educative, solidarity with Fondazione Salesi di Ancona.”

“The theme chosen for this edition is the Sea – he went on – not only in the aspects connected to the themes of pollution, but lived, grasped and perceived as an ecosystem and as a resource and we expect high participation from the classes, like in the past years.”

“We are very happy to participate in this project –  commented the regional Environment councillor, Angelo Sciapichetti – and especially on a theme as important as the Sea. An environmental resource to be preserved that the new generations look at with renewed awareness. In fact, we know that the young and the very young are ever more careful and sensitive about these topics and it is often them who educate the adults about responsible behaviour”

Even the representatives of the various associations spoke: Carlo Rossi – operative director of the Fondazione Ospedale Salesi Onlus (Salesi Hospital non-profit Foundation), Francesca Cuomo – Legambiente Marche who recalled how the association was involved from the very first edition and that the competition binds perfectly with the themes of the initiative ‘LibroAmbiente’ (Environment-book); the representative of Garbage Group, Mirleni who spoke about the project “Pelikan”, the boats built in the Doric shipyard (two in Italy, in Ancona and Genoa) that clean the sea by collecting solid semi-submerged and oily waste present on the surface of the water, and then separating them on board. Now Pelikan is even in Thailand and will soon be in other nations. Lastly, Roberta Tiranti  from the publishing house of Editrice  ELI – La Spiga who suggested how in the bicentenary year of the Infinite, it will be “sweet to shipwreck in this sea”.
