As part of the Forest Fire Prevention Campaign, the Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation (IFCN) has launched a new initiative aimed at schoolchildren, asking them to create a small 30-second video campaign that promotes ‘Forest Fire Prevention.’
“This initiative aims to raise awareness, educate, engage, and appeal to the active participation of young students and teachers to the importance of valuing and protecting the forest through good forest practices. We should always remember that negligence is the main cause of forest fires, and it is necessary to assume and put into practice behaviours that contribute to the reduction of the risk of ignition since the overwhelming majority of ignitions, directly or indirectly, originate from people.”
This is another action carried out by the IFCN that aims to “increase the social involvement of the population in a common cause, such as forest fire prevention, as well as promoting knowledge and self-responsibility.”
The competition is aimed at all students, either individually or in groups, from public and private institutions of the 1st/2nd/3rd Cycle and Secondary.
Participants must register by the 10th of March 2023 at the IFCN (Centre of Dragoeiros das Neves, 291 145594, or email email@example.com), and all videos must be submitted by the 19th of May.
The best videos will be integrated as part of the IFCN Forest Fire Prevention Campaign 2023 and published on all the IFCN’s communication and social channels.
