NEED FOR POPULARIZATION IN GEOSCIENCE: NARRATIVE AND EDUCATION

  • Mohamed Abioui Draa Center for Studies, Research and Documentation, Agadir, Morocco.

Abstract

Today, the scientific spirit is still little widespread in our society. We talk a lot, for multiple reasons, of the crisis in the teaching in Morocco, and the crisis of geosciences is not less serious. The university produces think models, and teachers. The course and the work of graduation (Bachelor or Master), is working in the direction to identify and better understand the popularization and valorization of heritage in general. Students, who choose primary or secondary education as their occupation, will have a key role to play in our society to bring close to the new generations the importance of the natural heritage and its preservation. This task would be achievable only through proper awareness and organizing educational tours or good geotourism, well documented and representative.
