Why schools follow us?
Why involving schools, and so young generations, in the great journey of the Andean Geotrail? The answer is striking and simple: this the young generations who are directly concerned by the protection of our planet, because they will live in the world we will leave to them and they will have the heavy burden to repare the errors done we have done. It is therfore of primary importance to to increase the youth awareness about the fundamental questions the protection of our environment, of a clever managment of natural resources, and to the discovery of new sources of energy. By being permanently in contact with the pupils of the partner schools durong our journey, we will show them some aspects of our planet they do not obviously know and that represent the major challenges for our future: exploitation areas of natureal resources (oil, minerals, etc ...), great agricultural provinces of the other side of the world, the managment of natural hazards (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, etc ...). By showing them those different aspects of the Geosciences, we hope we will give the need to take care of our planet.
