During the month of June 2018, the students of Liceo Bertolucci involved in Erasmus+, European Students’ Climate Report organized an action called CLEAN UP A RIVER! , dedicated to cleaning Cinghio stream, a little body of water that flows in Parma near the Campus University. The increase in the intensity of precipitation events due to climate change intensifies flood risk, so river restoration measures can be seen as an efficient climate change adaptation strategy.

The initiative was supported by ARPAE that contributed with the suitable equipment: garbage pliers, special gloves and trash bags.

During the day, we found every type of trash, from the little piece of paper to bottle of wine, shoes, wheels of a car, clothes and also a toaster!

We also found an area where under the mud there were so many abandoned plastic cans

CLEAN UP A RIVER is a simple initiative, but it’s very important to promote empowerment and active citizenship among young people.
