This workshop aims to explain to children the cycle of water. This is the first introduction of the theme of rainwater to children. Children learn in groups to define their environment.
At the last workshop, the children make a mini rainwater collector at a house. A perspective of the 4 workshops allows the children to better understand and perceive the water and city interactions.
The idea is based on the simple principle of placing on the sidewalks painted poems that appear only in case of rain in 8 key locations of the city Geneva.
We would especially like to thank the AmStramGram Theater for offering us the poems presented and our partners in the Agenda 21 - Sustainable City of Geneva and Loterie Romande for their financial support.
"We built a model and placed all the elements on the map: trees, houses, buildings" (Zoé)
"I was surprised to see that the children were still counting the number of public lighting after the workshop" (Nicole - GIAP Accompanist). This workshop allowed the children to open their eyes, to accompany them in the discovery of their immediate environment, to give them keys of reading and to sensitize them to become city-citizen. "
