Environmental education is a chance for growth, therefore it is directed to everybody that is called to establish goals, define strategies and actions that will enable said growth and offer a clearer vision on social values. These values ​​involve the acquisition of skills, behaviors and attitudes that are necessary to understand and

appreciate the interconnections amongst mankind, culture and environment. The challenge is to broaden the extents of environmental education in order to offer a better response to the need for an interdisciplinary strategy that will also make it possible to deal with the complexity and uncertainty of a world that is centered not only on nature, but also on culture.

By setting up this sort of education,  Pollino National Park shows its intention to involve locals by offering them more information about environmental protection, but also its clear goal to protect their culture.
