The project proposed by Sens solidaires association to the Jacques Martel Foundation has the dual feature of taking place in two phases and meeting two of the foundation missions: protecting marine resources and taking part to children education.
What are the two phases?
Firstly, the project involves an exchange of letters between secondary school pupils of our region and Senegalese pupils. They will each write about their solutions for preserving water resources.
This is a tested project that is being monitored over time. For example, a solution put forward in a previous edition focused on reforestation.
That’s why, in the spring, the Jacques Martel Foundation will be taking part in a reforestation operation at the Arboretum de Roure, with pupils from a local secondary school.
Reforestation is a solution that helps to preserve water resources insofar as it contributes to limiting erosion, and therefore landslides and flooding, which have collateral effects at sea.
We’re delighted to be taking part in a project of this kind in our region, with the aim of raising children’s awareness to respect the environment and protect marine resources.
