The aim of these educational activities can be summarized in four main points:

composed of, understanding the differences
between landscapes and noticing the
transformationes. Understanding the
landscape in which you live means
understand better yourself.
"It would be useful and important that the study of the landscape would enter in the schools, so that it would become, not only the object of learning, but also the base of an education to see, that could help to understand the meaning of the human beings on the Earth" [Turri, 1974]
- Learning to see as element to learn how to act in a proper way. "Education contributes to the recognition of the man's action effects over the environment and the concerning hiring of responsability. You can pay attention to the prevail perspective of knowledge and the one of action" [Benedetta Castiglioni, 2006].
- Respecting and preserve the landscape. So as animal and vegetable spacies in danger of extinction are stored and protected, in the same way also the landscape have to be respected and protected, because it risks the "extinction".
- Transmitting the landscape to the future generations. According to the logic of the sustainable developement, that is on the basis of the process of Agenda 21, also the landscape have to be protected without compromising the quality, and it have to be transmitted to the future generations.
