End of Task: Multimedia campaign to protect the environment

Task Step 6: Disseminating your multimedia campaign.

We have reached the end of this task. Now, we must share all we have done and specially our campaign to many different people and institutions.

First, it is time to make both parents and other teachers & students know about our campaign. Organize a public presentation of your campaign. In class, you can arrange a a general presentation, where you can invite other teachers and classmates or you can organize different actions to let anybody at your school know abour the work you have done.

In addition, a really amazing campaign like this would be perfect to be shared with people who work in institutions related with the natural environment. Scientists, members of non-governmental organizations, public administrators... How could you make it possible to make them know about your campaign and proposals? Share your ideas about this and look for a possible way to spread your work. An awesome campaign needs an amazing dissemination!
