'Segue a Tua Natureza' project aims to create a bridge between young people and Nature. With the right knowledge in place, applied to real natural contexts, we will contribute to ensure that today's young people become citizens who are aware of the Nature's identity value, giving it a voice and visibility!

After the success of the first edition of 'Segue a Tua Natureza', which took nine young people to Pico Island, in the Azores, the time has come to launch the second edition of this project.

'Segue a Tua Natureza' promotes nature literacy, aiming to shad some light over themes related to the natural protected areas allowing for the appropriation of nature identity by young people, both inside and outside school.

In the form of six webisodes, young people are taken on a journey through the Classified Areas, Ecosystem Services and Key Species of our country, as well as the possible and most desirable strategies for a sustainable enjoyment of these sensitive spaces, through Sports and Nature Tourism, Well-being through Nature and Environmental Advocacy. After the learning process, they will have to apply these concepts in the shooting of a short video promoting their Classified Area of choice, aiming to win an opportunity to participate in the documentary trip that, this year, will be hosted in the oldest island in the Azores - Santa Maria.

The support from the Azores exists! But we need all the help we can get to ensure that the 2nd edition really becomes a reality! So, for now, we will be focusing on the training phase of the project, with the production of the six webisodes. The money we are asking for will be used to filming, direction and production of the webisodes, as well as logistic expenses. We - and the Nature of our Country - are counting on you to make this happen! Thank you all.
