Tutoring - Erasmus

October – November 2021 – THE PRODUNAS MARBELLA ASSOCIATION
HOSTED A GROUP OF STUDENTS IN THE ERASMUS PROGRAM

ProDunas Marbella has signed a Working Agreement with the Madrid Practivista Organisation so that European students can enjoy training sessions in the framework of the Erasmus + mobility programs of the European Union.

Working with ProDunas Marbella consists in improving the qualifications of 5 students on environmental matters through direct and practical information in various dune environments on the Marbella coast. They will study with our Volunteers, and be coached by the Association’s biologists.

When they arrived, we welcomed them to the training program with our video: “Without dunes, there are no beaches”. Then María Morán, our biologist gave a PowerPoint presentation in English on the history and work of ProDunas Marbella, to initiate them into the world and ecosystems of the dunes.

Then out at the dunes they worked with the ProDunas Marbella team, learning what it all means: being committed to nature and its conservation and protection through eradication of invasive alien species. Harvesting the berries from the indigenous Sabina shrubs (Juniperus turbinate) was a milestone. The berries were finally ripe enough for this.

We are sure that this short but intense experience will show the group of students that without dedicated and active involvemen nature can often be abused and that without our help, our protective work, it can be wiped out.

For this reason the students from the ERASMUS + Program had to do “homework” during the internship. They will prepare a short, written and photographically illustrated summary which can be seen in the web
