AGROMETEOROLOGICAL MOSAIC FOR YOUTH: "The fire, fierce enemy of the forest"

Any forest fire prevention or mitigation of its consequences, which usually cause great economic losses, leads to savings in the budget. From all these reasons it is very important to implement prevention measures in forest protection against fire. One of these measures is a good education of the youngest. The most vivid display to the children on all danger that forest fire provides and its effects on the nature can be done with an image: the suffering of flora and fauna, laying bare of the soil, destruction of the landscape and long-term reconstruction of vegetation and forests. A picture speaks a thousand words.

Therefore, the image is the most accessible way. If these images are moving with sounds, voices and music, in the form of animated film, it will be a big hit for children. The animated film is now widely spread in children's lives and it is their most popular medium. The intention of the animated film of the working title "The fire, fierce enemy of the forest" is to display coastal forest that is full of life. Suddenly, fire was produced by negligence. Children first noticed that the forest is burning, firefighters and Canadairs were called, the fire was extinguished, but the consequences are horrific. Burning of weeds is forbidden in the summer, and this is a very common cause of the fire. The children are very sad when they see the fire site and they initiate the action of reforestation. Many years must pass for the restoration of the forest. From this film the children, but also adults, should learn a lesson. Human negligence often leads to terrible consequences. Therefore, the motto of the film is “Do not light the fire because the fire is not joking!" The final title of the film "The fire is not a joke” is derived from this lesson. The film was finished on September 5, 2016 and the premiere of the film will be held on the island of Lokrum, Dubrovnik on September 29, 2016.
