The Ice Stupa at the Diavolezza valley station welcomed some very special guests. A kindergarten class was able to spend a morning at the ice stupa and learn and try out lots of exciting things. The children marveled at the ice stupa from the outside and inside before they were allowed to try it out for themselves.

Young and old worked together to build a wooden structure that forms the basis for an ice stupa. After the journey of discovery in the fresh air, the children learned more about the ice stupas, the water supply and the glacier world through pictures and music.

Days like these are particularly important to us, because climate protection starts with the youngest children. Through playful learning outside the classroom and exploration, the children experience with all their senses what solutions there are for storing water. The younger they get to know and appreciate the glacier world, the more likely they are to want to protect it as adults.
