We thought of carrying out this activity to make it clear that we can sprout plants simply from a seed. In this way, it is possible to have a large variety of plants. In addition, we also thought of this activity to propose something to do to get distracted during the quarantine.

We participated in the Green Month initiative, proposed by ESN Italy, to raise awareness among international students about the environmental issue.

Educate about the impact of personal food choice on ecological footprint and how to reduce it throught a series of instagram stories spread during the week, with data and plant-based recipe suggestions in collaboration with giada_verde, an instagram account dedicated to this topic. At the end of the week we had an online aperitif using Google Meet where we talked about what sustainable aperitif food we had prepared and played a quiz on ecological footprint and sustainable lifestyle.

The goal of the activity was to promote sustainable lifestyle through daily "green" attitudes we could share. Many people contributed with different examples, recording a video. We edited all of this creating a small video guide showing how we can help reduce our global impact with simple choices.
The goal of the activity was to entertain our International Students while providing them some tips and facts about our planet; which is our impact on it, how much pollution we deliver in the atmosphere, which percentage of our emerged lands suffer from aridity, which are the highest/lowest/hottest spots etc. Therefore, we created a Kahoot! game ad hoc regarding the Earth Day that we celebrate on April 22nd, and we played it live on Meet.
