The Rotaract Club of Fiorenzuola d’Arda partnered with municipal officials and the Rotary clubs of Fiorenzuola d’Arda, Cortemaggiore Pallavicino, and Piacenza S. Antonino to challenge high school students to propose environmentally sustainable projects that city leaders could implement.

Dozens of students of the Mattei Institute vied for cash prizes in the (Rotar)Act for Nature. Rotaractors served as tutors for the process, says Guido Bosi, the club’s immediate past president. “First place, and €500 [about $550 at the time], went to a project to rehabilitate Lucca Park,” Bosi says, noting that jurors were impressed with the students’ research incorporating existing park plans into their proposal.
