Last week we launched the Bloomtrigger project in Escola Bilusco in Curitiba, Brazil. The pupils took part in a three-day workshop called ‘The Arara Workshop’ which was developed and implemented in partnership with a Brazilian organisation called Quíron. (Quíron is a social enterprise that aims to transform the way education is taught in Brazil). Over three mornings the pupils learnt about the forests, deforestation, climate change, sustainability and of course the Bloomtrigger project, while completing various activities, which ultimately resulted in them all helping to protect their own part of the Amazon rainforest. This was the first time a Bloomtrigger workshop has been taught in Portuguese and was developed especially for Brazilian children. The pupils at Escola Bilusco were great fun to teach and we are very proud to have them help pioneer our project in Brazil.

Here is an outline of what happened during the Arara Workshop!

Day 1:
Part 1. Introduction to rainforests, global deforestation, rainforest animals and the Bloomtrigger project

Part 2. Painting Bloomtrigger profile images

We are now busy editing a short video that will show how the project developed over the three days. We will be posting this shortly. It is then our intention to present our project to other schools in Brazil and to grow our network of Brazilian Bloomtrigger pioneers.
