A Light Step began in Vedano al Lambro by showing children what it means to leave an earth-friendly footprint in everyday life, with an engaging treasure hunt featuring 45 tips and fun facts on natural resource management, consumption choices, and waste disposal. After that, they grappled with an educational escape room, where they had the opportunity to test their knowledge and measure their ecological footprint and see environmental issues firsthand: the participants cleaned up waste in a small area of their city.
Those who showed the greatest interest and involvement were then able to participate in the final phase: the development of a thematic route along the trail that leads from Albaredo to Rifugio Alpe Piazza. The children attached an interactive sign with instructions to the pole at the beginning of the trail. Clearly visible along the path, they then placed six stones colored with ecological substances (which will disappear in a few months) providing clues to locate a box containing a recommendation and a short activity to be carried out.
The route is designed for everyone. Children and adults tackling the game as they walk can observe their natural surroundings and the signs left by human activity.
