“Guardian Dolphins” project with Marevivo
CASTALIA was as always side-by-side with the environmentalist Association Marevivo on the occasion of “The Guardian Dolphins”, an innovative project in environmental education devised by Marevivo for young people living on the minor islands and in the small coastal towns, with the aim of training them to play a role as protagonists in safeguarding their territory.
A special feature of the operation is the involvement of local forces including divers, cultural associations, fishermen, archaeologists and the institutions present in the Municipalities, not forgetting relations with the parents and the productive activities, above all the artisans – an inexhaustible source of positive experience for the young islanders and many others.
At the end of the course the young people are awarded a diploma, cap and badge qualifying them as guardians of their territory. At the same time, a special channel is opened up for the young people in the territory of the Municipality and Harbour Office to report to the authorities cases which, in the light of the instruction they have received, they see as violating the rules.
