“Today you go to school: children teaching interdependence”

Educational activities of the project  “Today you go to school: children teaching interdependence”, created by the International Association for Solidarity in Asia (ASIA) and funded by Italian Agency for Development Cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The project involves a total of 500 students and 40 teachers from the 28th Istituto Comprensivo Giovanni XXIII – Aliotta in Naples who participate in a structured calendar of visits, educational activities and training meetings during the  school year 2019/20.
Fondazione idis has developed a teaching activity focused on the biology of social insects and in particular on ants, as a clear example in nature of interdependence between living beings, a characteristic concept of Buddhist culture. This activity takes place in the spaces of the Insetti & Co. exhibition which hosts some ants’ colonies of different species.
For the occasion, a special field notebook was prepared that each of the pupils receives and uses to participate with greater involvement in this original educational experience.
The initiative is part of the larger Distinct but not Distant project – The values ​​preserved by Buddhist culture as a means of breaking down inner boundaries and making diversity a great wealth, which provides for similar interventions in other Italian cities involving other important Italian educational realities such as Explora , the Children’s Museum of Rome, the Ad Artem association and the Museo  Novecento in Milan.
