The educational programme I’ll Take Care of You
Everyone’s contribution to a Planet for all.
A vision of the Planet as a “big house”
First launched in 2015 as part of the collaboration between Sofidel and WWF, “I’ll Take Care of You: everyone’s contribution to a Planet for all” (“Mi Curo di Te: il gesto di ognuno per il Pianeta di tutti”) is a multi-year educational project which aims to raise awareness among children of how everyday actions (i.e. consuming water, paper, energy, …) are linked to major global issues (i.e. deforestation, climate change, melting glaciers, …), stimulate curiosity and motivate the adoption of sustainable behaviours.
In an era of great global changes, it is necessary to live the relationship with the Earth and its resources with the awareness that everything we do, even the smallest deed, has important consequences, either negative or positive, on the balance of nature and for everyone’s future.
In line with the international dimension of WWF, the learning plan, aimed at Italy’s primary and secondary schools, intends to offer students and teachers a vision of the Planet as a “big house”: we all live in it and we are all called to keep it clean, efficient and healthy.
Particularly focused on issues related to “water”, “climate” and “forests”, the initiative is explained also in light of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and 9 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To date, over 230,000 students in Italy have been reached by the initiative, which is proving very popular among primary and secondary schools.
