Programme targeted at baccalaureate students with a particular interest in the field of biodiversity and nature conservation with the goal of encouraging youths’ scientific vocations in this field of research.
Do you love nature?
Nature Campus travels through all of Catalonia, north to south and east to west, to reveal the secrets of nature conservation.
What is Nature Campus?
The programme stimulates the talent and encourages the vocations of 30 students from the 1st and 2nd year of baccalaureate with a particular interest in research in the field of biodiversity and nature conservation. This is an opportunity for students to become familiar with fieldwork and learn more about the different techniques used to study and conserve land and marine flora and fauna from experts in this field.
The programme consists in seven Saturday or weekend theoretical-practical sessions which are held during academic year 2022 between February and May. The majority of the sessions are held in the natural spaces owned by the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation: La Pedrera (Casa Milà), Alinyà Mountain, MónNatura Pirineus, MónNatura Delta, Montserrat-Coll de Can Maçana and Món Sant Benet. These sessions examine issues related to biodiversity and environmental and nature conservation.
The Nature Campus is part of Life Green, a project led by Catalonia La Pedrera Foundation and supported by the European Commission. Its aim is to mobilise, empower and raise awareness among citizens, especially young people, towards the objectives of the European Green Deal.
