ACTION 2 ART is a project designed to raise awareness about recycling and the circular economy, conceived for upper secondary schools by ilVespaio, a network of professionals who operate in the fields of eco-design and sustainability on behalf of A2A.
The initiative involves a creative workshop in which the students of the secondary schools in the city of Bergamo learn to design benches or chairs for use in public areas using the materials collected in the recycling plant managed by Aprica, a company of the A2A group.
The professionals of ilVespaio will organise two workshops with the ten classes participating in the project.
A panel of designers and members of A2A will choose the best design created by the classes.
The project is fruit of the ideas and requests that emerged from the Listening Forum of Bergamo staged by A2A in July 2016. The Forum is an event held by A2A in the geographical areas in which it is present, during which it analyses the requirements of the different stakeholders present and identifies projects that can be set in motion in order to create shared value.
AmbienteParco is a science centre dedicated to environmental sustainability located inside the Parco dell’Acqua, an urban park in the middle of the historic town centre of Brescia. Progetto Scuola A2A shares with AmbienteParco its commitment to promote environmental sustainability and the importance of school education, offering Nursery, Primary and Secondary schools the possibility to participate in two learning initiatives, free of charge:
NaturAcqua Water Exhibition
Water is an essential asset that people use in ways that are not very sustainable. The purpose of this course is to raise the awareness of visitors about the importance of respecting and saving water on a day-to-day basis, a resource for life that is extremely precious and just as scarce.
An permanent interactive exhibition focusing on water in all its forms, as a natural resource, from the tap or bottled, virtual water, water in the world, pollution.
NEW! The Game of the Four Rs: REDUCTION RE-USE RECYCLING RECOVERY
is a fun way to reflect on the themes of waste, the concept of reduction, waste, re-use, recycling and recovery which, for the older participants, becomes a focus on the LCA - Life Cycle Assessment, the definition of packaging and laws.
Theatricalised installation curated by Teatro Telaio
In view of the roaring success witnessed last year (when approximately 5,000 students took part in the initiative), once again we are offering all the schools in Brescia the chance to experience the theatricalised exposition "Ogni cosa al suo posto" (Everything in its place), an installation curated by Teatro Telaio and staged at the Science Museum in Brescia. Along a pathway through rooms appropriately set up with different materials, the young people, accompanied by actors, will have the chance to learn the secrets behind the art of recycling waste and the importance of each move they make in contributing to the wellness of the environment.
The experience lasts for approximately 50 minutes.
From January onwards, the experience will also be available to schools in the province of Brescia.
For info and bookings please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year we will again be presenting the TV quiz “Our energy for the environment”, made in collaboration with Teletutto and the contribution of Fondazione ASM. The boys and girls of class V of the primary schools and year III of the lower secondary schools in Brescia will answer questions and play games relative to waste, district heating, water and sustainability. The winning schools will receive prizes at a party to be held in the theatre for all the participating schools.
We are again offering the environmental education course managed by Aprica S.p.A., the group's environmental hygiene company, in collaboration with the Koinè cooperative. The theme of the workshops will be reducing waste with a focus on food waste. Food is wasted at every stage of the food production chain, from producer to consumer. The aim of the initiative is to convey fundamental concepts that encourage students to take responsibility for their actions.
The activities and workshops are customised based on the age of the young people in attendance.

Within the scope of the initiative promoted by the Municipality of Milan “Dire, Fare, Educare” (Say, Do, Educate), AMSA, with the collaboration of Fondazione AEM, is offering the exhibition/workshop The Game of the Four Rs - REDUCTION RE-USE RECYCLING RECOVERY, an educational activity that focuses on waste recycling. Using techniques such as cooperative learning and active engagement, the young people are stimulated and taught how to act responsibly and sustainably with regard to their surrounding environment.
The exhibition will be open free of charge to schools in Milan from the month of November.

In collaboration with MIC - Interactive Cinema Museum, “CIAK: L’AMBIENTE (The environment on film)”, is back. The initiative features films and meetings focusing on Education about Sustainable Development, the third edition of the cinematographic event on the themes of Environment, Energy and Waste Recycling, dedicated to primary and secondary schools. Last year, the second edition witnessed the participation of 700 young cinema-goers during the 8 dates proposed.
The secondary schools in Varese were involved in a campaign designed to raise awareness about waste recycling, which included meetings attended by task forces composed of members of school management, teachers, student representatives and ATA staff, as well as the students themselves. Recycling centres for collecting paper, cardboard, plastic and metal were distributed free of charge, in addition to materials offering information, such as the poster “Where should I dispose of it?” to be put up in classrooms and the mini-guide “Is that where it goes?” to be distributed to the participants.
The initiative is fruit of a listening activity promoted by Aspem with the Municipality of Varese and Comieco, aimed at some of the local stakeholders and here linked to the school. Its objective is to define a number of shared actions capable of achieving the common goal: to recycle 65% of the waste collected in the city.
For more information, please write to email@example.com.
Meetings and educational workshops specifically conceived for each age group, in which to tackle the themes of environmental sustainability, how to reduce the production of waste and waste recycling. The participating schools are provided with suitable waste recycling equipment.
These interventions are aimed at the schools in the municipalities served by Aprica S.p.A., the environmental management company of the A2A group, and are managed by the company's Waste Observatory.
