I am the civil protection too: 2019 edition of the school camps

The twelfth edition of the school camps that have trained and involved over 70 thousand youngs throughout Italy is now underway.

The Project


The school camps "I am the Civil Protection too", organized by the Department of Civil Protection in collaboration with the regions and national and local voluntary organizations were created eleven years ago with the aim of enhancing both the skills of youth  and their knowledge to protect the environment, the territory and the community.

For the 2019 edition almost 300 school camps are scheduled, therefore over 8,000 young people throughout Italy will be involved in the daily work of civil protection including the Fire Fighters, the Police Forces, the 118 Italian Red Cross, representatives of municipalities, regions and many other actors of the National Service of Civil Protection.

Since the first edition until today, the Project has involved, trained and taught over 40,000 young people between 10 and 16 years old, raising their awareness of the active role they can play within the communities.

All the photos and videos of the 2019 edition are available on Flickr and Youtube.

Playing is a didactic method to effectively dialogue with children and encourage the dynamics of confrontation, exchange and growth among them. Fun and training are therefore the key words of the school camps, which offer children recreational activities, but also a full educational program designed to raise awareness of the Civil Protection System and, in particular, of municipal emergency plans and the territory.

During the school camps, the voluntary organizations have the opportunity to introduce the youngest to the knowledge of the activities they carry out daily for the territory.

Among the immediate and medium term objectives of the school camps "I am the civil protection too" there are:

- Encouraging the protection of the forest and natural heritage

- contribute to risk prevention

- promote knowledge of the tasks of the National Service

- raising awareness among young people of the importance of contingency planning
