Project PraticaMente Api

Project PraticaMente Api

The project carries out 3 different activities linked together by a minimum common denominator: bees. Their world, their social relationships, their function in our ecosystem, the need to protect them and to educate them to respect the environment and safeguard nature. The project develops distinct and well-defined activities but linked together in a constant dialogue that brings the world of bees and those who love them into the walls of our cities and among people who do not yet know them.

The planned activities are:

1 – Course for beekeepers: the project foresees the realization of a training course lasting 21 hours of classroom lessons and n. 40 hours of internship with direct experience in the field; conceived to transfer highly expendable technical-practical skills in the world of work. The course will be open to 3 types of students: people with mental illness, probationary prisoners and workers in the tourism sector. The people reported by the ASL – Department of Mental Health for Adults struggle every day against stigma and isolation and for them participating in an activity together with people who do not share the same path represents an opportunity for positive comparison during which to train their own relational and social skills. People reported by the Massa M.ma Prison can carry out their own rehabilitation path while learning a specific skill and with a certain relevance with respect to future job opportunities. People who are passionate about the beekeeping world can increase their knowledge and skills, in order to be able to plant a hive in their own space to produce honey on their own and contribute to the protection of bees.

2 – Educational proposal for minors: the project carries out an activity aimed at students of the 3rd-4th and 5th grades of the primary school of 3 schools in the area. In addition to learning about the world of bees, children will be called to exercise positive leadership, living experiences of shared meaning and meaning. Children are the citizens of tomorrow, experiences capable of putting them at the center and making them protagonists allow them to develop the critical sense and responsibility necessary to be and become aware interpreters of their role as citizens.
