KidsGoGreen engaged 1800 kids from primary schools in Trentino

23/06/2022 The initiative is organized by Fondazione Bruno Kessler and Cooperativa Kaleidoscopio, in collaboration with local governments and with the support of ITAS Mutua and Casse Rurali Trentine.

Thanks to the success of previous editions, 58 routes have been activated again for 2022, specifically in schools in Trento, Rovereto, Pergine, Borgo Valsugana, Aldeno, Albiano, Dro, Pietramurata, Sarche, Arco, Vigo di Ton, Moena, Vigo Di Fassa, Pozza di Fassa, Canazei, Marter, Castelnuovo, Telve, and Novaledo.

The participants all together committed to 178,000 car-free kilometers (equal to 4.5 laps around the Earth). This is an educational game involving schools, children and families in an adventure to discover the world and under the banner of more sustainable mobility. As part of the school curriculum, teachers, with the help of the Kids Go Green Web app developed specifically for the initiative, design theme routes by identifying stages to which they associate multimedia educational content. The children in the classroom report daily about their home-school trips and the sustainable kilometers traveled by each one of them make the group advance along the route. Once a stage is reached, the multimedia content is unlocked, thus creating the opportunity to start a new topic. The stages reached and the interesting content are a motivation to advance along the route.

Compared to previous editions, an increasing number of routes address environment and ecological transition related issues, bringing them down to the local area and daily lives of students. These include, for example, routes dedicated to the goals of Agenda 2030 in Trentino, green professions of the future, renewable energy, and the water cycle.
