Students ready to represent Pará in Norway

HydroAlunorte's socio-educational project teams embark in the coming days to Oslo. They want to achieve the good results they have achieved in classrooms with the ball at their feet.

Members of the Alunorte Rain Forest (ARF) teams, male and female, received last Wednesday, July 18, passports that will take them to Scandinavia. Next week, they embark for Oslo, where they participate in the Norwegian Cup.

During the young people's farewell ceremony, held at Hydro Alunorte's headquarters in Barcarena, Pará, the athletes also received travel kits, including official team uniforms, walking shirts, trousers, warm clothing, bags and backpacks . "The trip to Oslo will not only be to play football, but also to gather experiences. The athletes will be multiplying agents, they will bring the experience about what they saw outside to add to the discussions at the Environmental Forum, which will be held in December", explains Alberto Muller, coordinator of the Bola pra Frente, Educação pra Gente program and ARF technician.

In addition to sports activities, the program, developed by the alumina refinery in partnership with the Municipal Department of Education, is also concerned with implementing the School Agenda 21 in Barcarena, which provides for environmental preservation and awareness actions, based on the Agenda 21 Global.

"Our goal is to rewrite the history of education in the municipality. We need to do something so that our young people have a better future and a broad vision of what they want for this future", added Vera Barros, Semed Pedagogical Coordinator. < / p>

The event brought together family members and athletes, in addition to the technical committee that will accompany the group during the trip.

Results: Last year, the men's team won second place in their competition, competing with over 200 teams. This year, the goal is to bring the cup to Pará, as the ARF is the only team to represent the state in the competition, which has, in total, about 2 thousand teams from various parts of the world.

For Laila Furtado, defender of the women's team, participating in a tournament like this, which has worldwide recognition, is a possibility to open doors for students who are part of the team. "Besides, of course, trying to win, the project comes to give us the chance of a better life. Many young people limit their dreams because they do not believe that it is possible, the project has given us a motivation to keep trying."
