The participants completed study visits in the field of Environmental Sustainability.  They gained experience in this field and became acquainted with the traditional Italian and Sicilian techniques related to environmental sustainability.

The students explored protected areas of endangered biological and cultural diversity, visiting winery, companies in the sector of renewable energy, recycling and more. During the study visits, they met business people, tour rural communities and conservation and development projects.
