Split students for 2013 Coast Day

04.07.2013

The 2013 Mediterranean Coast Day celebration will focus on raising awareness of the future of the coasts in the Mediterranean. Great importance is attributed to work with children and adolescents. PAP/RAC has approached the geography teacher from the grammar school “Vladimir Nazor” of Split to organise some activities with his advanced geography group. During the spring semester a number of activities were organised, from workshops and lectures, to practical research on the city beaches. In their geography classes and based on the lectures they attended at PAP/RAC office on coastal zone management and beach management, the students prepared a brief analysis of three beaches in the Split municipality (Žnjan, Kašjuni, Baèvice).

On July 3 they visited PAP/RAC to present their work and first draft of the presentation they will make as part of the programme of the central Coast Day celebration in Rimini on September25. They presented the results of their study and the methodology used for the analysis through power point presentation, describing the beaches, identifying key issues and pointing out possible solutions. Each presentation was commented by the PAP/RAC’s experts. The students were given tips on how to better structure their presentations and suggestions on how to better illustrate the methodology they applied. The PAP/RAC team agreed that the work done by the students, well driven by their teacher, was very good, both the desk work and the field researches.

They will now finalise their work, and to prove their motivation the students agreed to make another test presentation again in August, before the best students join the main Coast Day 2013 Celebration in Rimini, Italy, on September 25.
