Escola Bilusco is located in Curitiba in the South of Brazil and became the first Brazilian school to take part in the Bloomtrigger project. Over three days the pupils participated in a series of presentations and activities called Workshop Arara, (to learn more about Workshop Arara read this report here). The workshop involved learning about important topics such as rainforests, global deforestation, climate change and sustainability. The children painted profiles of themselves for Bloomtrigger's online platform and helped to protect their own part of the Amazon rainforest by planting 'blooms' (Bloomtrigger's virtual currency) on the map. On the final day of the workshop the children recorded a video message to an English school Townfield Primary School who are also one of the schools helping to pioneer the Bloomtrigger project. As part of this video message the Brazilian pupils planted something for the English school on the Bloomtrigger map.
