Abstract

The continuous emergence of environmental crisis is analysed by several studies confirming the undeniable human’s responsibility in the planetary changes. Humans seems to strongly require education on their relationship with the natural environment. Currently, immigrants are 8.2% of the entire Italian population: exploring their perspective on what they deem necessary to improve the relationship with the natural world, through an unprecedented quali-quanty methods research, led to some interesting results. Highlighting the fundamental importance ascribed to the relationship of closeness with nature for people’s physical, mental and spiritual well-being, the majority of respondents confirms the essential function education plays to know, love and respect nature. The role of school is considered as elemental for education and awareness towards nature and animals. Schools in accounted as an ideal place for proposing experiences of direct relationship with them to the children, who have to be accompanied from an early age to get close to nature, especially those living in highly urbanized environments. Teaching eco-sustainable behaviours is also required, such as recycling and preserving. Families well play a basic role for giving good example on respect towards nature and animals. Education for adults also results as extremely necessary
