Workshops for School children were lead by SSPH+ partners, Accademia Teatro Dimitri artists. Children learned how to give a second life to materials like paper and turned into toys and used them for play to be physically active. The event sought to raise awareness among children about the importance of taking care of the planet and being physically active as part of a healthy lifestyle!
