The Symposium started 8 years ago and was named the Green Symposium, but due to the importance of sustainability, a decision was made to change the name to Sustainable Education Symposium, addressing schools and focusing on sustainability.
This year focus will be on the “Community Garden” Hofi di Bario. This project was created by the Minister after he visited New York where he saw something similar. The goal of this project is to get the community together and use public unused land to establish small gardens. This should benefit the neighborhood since it will create green areas that can produce fruits that can be harvested by the neighbors.
SES is a good tool to create awareness among the youth of the importance of agriculture. More and more people are interested in agriculture and this symposium will provide much-needed information.
SES 2019 will take place on September 4, 2019 at the Cas di Cultura from 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm. There will be many speakers and also sustainable produce for sale. This event is free of charge.
