May 2020 was dedicated to the theme of Sustainability with a new edition of Green Month, an initiative totally edited by ESN Italia.
The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness of the need to change our lifestyle in order to reduce CO2 and other greenhouse gases emission.
ESN Italia has therefore offer food for thought divided into four themes: sustainable mobility; sustainable lifestyle; ecological footprint and deforestation.
During the week dedicated to Deforestation, ESN Brescia has decided to educate people about the important role playing by forests in our ecosystem. We raise awareness of this topich through a series of instagram stories spread during the week, with data, quiz and suggestions about outdoor natural places near Brescia to visit (like parks or protected lands). Meanwhile, we launched a fundraiser to adopt trees on Treedom and WOWNature platform.
The learning objective was to make participants conscious about the impact that deforestation has on our entire planet and our survival. With the fundraising campaign they have been directly involved in the cause and had the possibility to make their own contribution to fight against deforestation.
Thanks to the amount collected, ESN Brescia could buy on Treedom and WOWnature platform six trees, located in sensitive areas in Kenya, Burkina Faso and around Italy.
