Zagreb, November 9, 2017

"Fire is no joke" presented at the Scientific Quarter of INTERLIBER

As scientists we started to create an educational animated film, then a children's comic about forest fires. We sought the help of the artist's external associates. We tried to link scientific and artistic thoughts, and normally, we often reproached and sought common points in different things. Linking science, where everything needs to be exact and with evidence, and art, that has unlimited freedom, looks like an impossible mission. But in the end we succeeded. Animated film is the backbone of the Little School "Fire is no joke", as well as children's comic with the same name. Those two are durable, educational material that we share with children. Their best promotion was at this year's biggest book event in Zagreb, INTERLIBER.

The enthusiasm in Čučerje with animated film "Fire is no joke"

The idea of organization of the Little School "Fire is no joke" for students of the Čučerje Elementary School in Zagreb came up on Hvar beach during the summer heat, when terrible fires harboured Dalmatia. Maintenance of two Little Schools for II and VIII classes in Čučerje came from a random conversation about the animated film "Fire is no joke" with a professor of fine arts education, who is a class teacher in VIII class in that school.

Day of Agrometeorology

For better promotion of agrometeorology and activation of our membership, at the 9th general assemble we decided to declare the Day of Agrometeorology and chose the 29th May. Perhaps nothing important happened in agrometeorology on this date, but it was convenient for us to keep the Little School "Fire is no joke" in different parts of Croatia. However, we later found out that on May 29, 1953, man first won the highest peak in the world. There are some symbols as well. Our Society is slightly developing and climbing, and will reach the top one day.

Agrometeorological Seminar "Protecting our forests against fire"

More and more we are witnessing a catastrophic fire in the open air that destroy our forests, agricultural land, olive groves and vineyards, threatening biodiversity and distort the landscape, and often endanger settlements and people's lives. All this may adversely affect the development of our economy, especially tourism. System implementation of preventive measures to protect forests from fire is interdisciplinary and requires a high level of expertise and the application of all previous knowledge. However, this knowledge cannot remain in narrow professional and scientific circles. Therefore it is necessary to reach out to the public, especially to young people who are more inclined to accept new ideas and implement them.
