Promotion of science dissemination sessions
Last June, the UNESCO Chair in Biodiversity Safeguard for Sustainable Development promoted new science dissemination sessions on the themes “Biodiversity” and “We and others” using two films provided by the CineEco Environmental Festival of Serra da Estrela background and promoting the goals of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
This time, the researcher Catarina Moura spoke with the children of the four rooms (Snails, Turtles, Fish and Tigers) of the Social Support Services Kindergarten of the University of Coimbra (JISASUC), starting from questions associated with the short films and using many “animal friends” and two books on Forests and Biodiversity on our Planet (from microorganisms to large mammals and redwoods). The researcher highlighted the active participation (many reasons!) and thirst for knowledge of the little ones as a motivation for more and future activities!
