The 4ºC class of EB1 n.º10 of Solum presented the show River Stories, within the scope of the CresceRio project, on June 30, 2022. The school, known as Anexas, became a stage for students to share with the public what they have learned about river habitats and ecosystems over the past four years.
During the last phase of the project (since the 2018/19 school year), we recalled the experiences that the students had on the riverside and we created six stories in which the children took on the role of the characters. Marionet coordinated the creation and development of this show, whose work focused on the need to preserve the environment, reduce, recycle and also the importance of mutual respect. We began from the premise that children would create a theatre show about their experience, in order to raise awareness of the importance of urban ecosystems. The class finishes primary school with a very good performance on riparian area preservation!
The CresceRio project is an initiative of MARE – Center for Marine and Environmental Sciences, for the transfer of knowledge between science and society and also for environmental awareness and education, whose main objectives are: to raise awareness of aquatic ecosystems and in particularly urban streams, develop social responsibility for the preservation and recovery of urban rivers and their ecosystems through the school community (children, teachers, parents, others) and contribute to the preservation of urban streams, their ecosystems and services.
