Gagliardi, Raul; And Others
This paper discusses innovative schemes for environmental protection training in Italy. Section I lists elements contained in well-organized environment protection activity. Section II provides an example of environmental training for Italian trade union leaders that helps them understand the complexity of environmental systems and negotiate the necessary measures to protect the environment. An analysis of a seminar for the trade union leaders discusses training strategy, content, and the seminar's organization around the concept of "territory." Section III contains materials on training for environmental monitoring, including information on monitoring environmental variables and monitoring the mountain environment. Sections IV, V, and VI analyze three examples of training for monitoring the environment in Italy: two in the Valtellina Region, a mountain area where there was a major flood in 1987, and another in the Lake Trasimeno Region in Umbria. Section IV describes International Geophysical Center training designed to complement a university degree. Section V addresses training activities of the organization Cooperativa Rilancio Valtellina in Sondrio for mountain territory technicians. Section VI describes a training course for environmental control technicians offered by the National Center for Professional Training about New Technology for Integrated Projection and Environment. Appendixes include information on content of the training activities. (YLB)
