The environmental class of the College d’Ile Rousse, Corsica visited Greece along with their teacher and headmaster, Martine Philibert and Jacqueline Rode, representatives of the Direction Régionale de l’Environnement, de l’Aménagement et du Logement (DREAL Corse) and of the Conseil d’Architecture, d’Urbanisme et d’Environnement de la Haute Corse (CAUE), from the 4th to the 8th May 2011.

The MedWet Secretariat decided to design an activity for the students in order to raise awareness on small coastal wetlands and to promote the collaboration between Greek and French students.  The two day activity took place on the island of Aegina and the Corsican students had the opportunity to meet and work together with their local homologues.  The aim of this activity was to show the students that wetlands are not always big and protected areas but very often are small and neglected sites whose values are ignored or are unknown even to local communities.

The activity was very successful and the material used is available for download.
