23 April - "From Garden to Sea"
In collaboration with Slow Food Livorno, Livorno Aquarium hosts a special event dedicated top schools as part of the "From Garden to Sea" day organized by the Province of Livorno, an excellent opportunity to enhance the awareness of new generations on the protection and responsible use of fisheries resources.
The event will be held on 23 April, and will be reserved for 8 of the 40 classes participating in the “Gardens at School” project promoted by Slow Food Livorno. After presenting the "Pesce ritrovato" project by Fish Scale, from 10 am to 1 pm the eight classes will compete in a themed game in perfect edutainment style, in which they learn in an enjoyable way about sustainable fishing and consumer awareness in fish consumption.
The students of the four winning classes will be presented by the aquarium with a complimentary children’s admission ticket valid when accompanied by one fully paying visitor, to be used by 30/05/2013 and not cumulative with other promotions.
"Pesce ritrovato" by Fish Scale is a project that aims to foster awareness on responsible fish consumption financed by the European Commission as part of the LIFE+ programme, and supported by the Region of Liguria, a co-financer of the project. Coordinated by Genoa Aquarium, the project involves various Italian partners like Legambiente, Lega Pesca, AGCI Agrital, Coop Liguria and Softeco SIsmat.
