The Regional Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources participated this morning at the XII Eco-Escolas Regional Meeting, held in Porto Moniz.
To those present, Susana Prada recalled one of Fernando Pessoa’s poems, her favorites, to praise the “giant” performance of the students participating in the initiative and in the defense of the environment: “I am the size of what I see / And not, the size of my height”.
She emphasized that “the planet has never been so threatened. Fruit of the development model of modern societies, exacerbated consumerism and rapid profit, we have exceeded all limits … ”
Emphasizing that urgent measures are needed to combat climate change and the depletion of natural resources and the pollution of the oceans, Susana Prada understands that these are “the greatest challenges of the generations we are educating”.
On the part of the Regional Government, the person in charge assured that the executive always bet on the environmental education, aware of its importance, for the change of the paradigm of development of society, for the change of behaviors, and for the adoption of sustainable measures. The results are in sight. ”
Indeed, the Region continues to be the national leader in several environmental programs. “We have been, year after year, increasing our participation in the Eco-Schools Program. There are now 66% of the establishments in the Region. Double the participation of the second best classified Region of the country. There were more than 5,200 teachers and 34,000 students from 134 educational institutions, 3 more than the previous year. ”
Susana Prada also recalled that in the “Green Key” program, the international award that promotes Sustainable Tourism in Portugal, the Region assumes the leadership in the number of awards awarded among the various regions of the country. 57% of Green Key hotels in Portugal are from Madeira.
“The Zero Pollution Strategy in the sea of ​​the RAM is another measure of the Regional Government, in the fight against the pollution of the coastal waters. The strong commitment to environmental education and awareness has contributed to the region’s excellent quality of bathing water from 2015 to 2018 from 53 to 70%, “he added.
