This discovery book for pupils from 10 to 12 years old, was conceived by the local action group ‘Culturalité en Hesbaye brabançonne’ in partnership with eco-advisers, teachers and with the association l’Atelier Sorcier, involving six rural municipalities of the area called Hesbaye brabançonne, in Belgium. Its aim is to raise awareness of children on nature and agriculture.
As part of this initiative, a call for projects for primary schools was also launched. Eight projects have been accepted and are implemented since September 2012. The objective is to promote biodiversity in schools, by implementing ponds, vegetable garden, flower meadows, birdhouses; and at broader scale improve and protect ecological network in the rural area.
