ACTION A.5: Training courses for volunteers

Today, August 13th, 2020, starts the call for expression of interest in the training course for volunteers of the LIFE Eremita project !!


The course, divided into 8 workshops, includes theoretical online activities and field activities organised between the months of September and October 2020.


Target: amateur entomologists, Voluntary Ecological Guards (VEG), nature enthusiasts, photographers, university students.


The training course will have a modular structure, the duration of each activity is between 4 and 6 hours and will involve approximately up to a maximum of 20 participants. The facebook live broadcast will have a maximum duration of one hour.




  • Natura 2000 network and biodiversity conservation;
  • Biology and ecology of the target species of the LIFE Eremita Project and the main threat factors;
  • Actions of the LIFE Eremita Project: conservation, monitoring and communication actions;
  • Techniques for monitoring the target species;
  • Techniques used in conservation actions;
  • Reproduction and ex situ breeding techniques of Osmoderma eremita.


Methods of implementation


The theoretical activities will be organised online, through the use of a platform that allows direct interaction between the teacher and those who attend, so that those who have questions or are curious to know more can immediately receive an answer from the teacher.


In addition to the theoretical activities, direct facebook broadcasts - called Q&A - will be organised to further involve, in a fun and stimulating way, those who are following the activities. Through an interview format lasting 1 hour, an expert entomologist or teacher will answer some questions together with an interviewer. The live broadcasts can be followed not only by volunteers, but also by all the people online who follow the facebook page @Liferemita and who will be notified the live broadcast is about to start. At the end of the interview, there will be room for questions from volunteers and the live audience.


Finally, field or practical activities guided by entomolgy experts will be carried out, representing an important part of the course for the volunteers and an integral part of the training path.


To participate, download the expression of interest, fill in the form and send it by email to no later than September 14th, 2020. Download the course program for more information on the times and places of the activities.
