A lesson for young bio-patriots

Nov. 19, 2019 | Bioeconomy Knowledge and Development Center

You can respect your fatherland in many ways – also by not throwing around litter and by saving natural resources like water or energy. This is what the RDI2CluB team from the Świętokrzyskie Voivodship wanted to teach the young citizens during a special lesson of patriotism, conducted in the Marshal Office of the Świętokrzyskie Voivodship in Kielce. It was organized on the 7 November 2019, just before the National Independence Day in Poland (11 November) for 2nd grade students of the Primary School No. 28 in Kielce. They were told about different forms of showing their respect for the fatherland, like knowing their country’s history, paying respect to national symbols, as well as caring for their region and its natural heritage. The latter perfectly reflect the ideas of bioeconomy! The children found out how important their daily habits are and how by sorting the waste, saving water and energy, not wasting food they help the planet. They took part in a lively discussion, ate treats on edible, biodegradable dishes made of wheat bran and received a set of gifts promoting the region and the bioeconomy. One of them was a book entitled “Nature is an adventure. Experiments for a young scientist. On the track of laws of nature” by J. Hecker – bought within the RDI2CluB project in order to promote bioeconomy among the youngest citizens. Similar lessons, joining patriotic and environmental education, are being planned in the Marshal Office of the Świętokrzyskie Voivodship as a cyclical event aimed at young citizens interested in the subject.
