On Saturday the 23rd, we realized a vegan solar lunch in Parco Scarpellini, situated at the Distict 7 Montegranaro – Muraglia of the Municipality of Pesaro. The lunch was realized thanks to the utilization of 10 Copenhagen solar panels, together with the support of gas and electric cooking, due to the fact that we had to prepare a high quantity of food and that we hadn’t a sufficient number of volunteers in order to prepare them only with solar cooking. Next time we will try to cook all with solar ovens and cookers! Here on the right, you can see the flyer of the initiative and also some photos, taken from the preparation of the rice for the rice salad, which was cooked the they before the lunch, that is to say Friday the 22rd. Unforrtunately, on Saturday we forgot to make photos, please excuse us! Anyway, the experience demonstrated that it is possibile to cook with the Copenhagen solar panel cookers also in September, provided that there is sun and, in case the cookers are made of less efficient materials, provided that we take care to reduce the quantity of food that we cook.

The lunch has been patronised by the District 7 and it has been supported by the nonprofit organisation Festa dei Popoli and by the juvenile project “AggregAzione Sostenibile”, whose lead partner is the nonprofit organisation Eco-Fatto, located in Sant’Ippolito.

On 23rd of July, we organized a workshop for the self-construction of Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light panel cooker, dedicated both to the children and adults going to the Bahia del Sol beach in Pesaro. After the workshop, we prepared about 1 kg of rice salad and we gave it to taste to some of the participants and also to some of the workers at the beach! Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to take pictures, so we have to show only the leaflet of the event, next time we will take pictures too!

June 22 – 25 2017, Sassonia beach in Fano. We participated at the V Edition of Passaggi Festival, the Festival of literary essays taking place in Fano. This year was dedicated to the theme of “Love at the time of hate”. In particular, we organized several workshops for the self construction of solar panel cookers and demonstrations of solar cooking for the bathers of Sassonia beach in Fano. We also presented a poster describing the  “Solar Cooker Project”, a project that has been realized in the refugee camps of Eastern Chad in order to support Darfurian refugees.

During the four days of Passaggi Festival we involved tens of children in the costrucion of 15 Copenhagen solar panel cookers. Quite all the cookers have been built during June 22nd and 23rd afternoon at Gabriele Beach and Peppe Beach, while on June the 24th and 25th at Carlo Beach and Maurizio Beach we gave more space to demonstrations of solar cooking, building only two solar cookers.

During June the 24th and 25th, at Carlo Beach and Maurizio Beach, we realized a demonstration of solar cooking using Copenhagen solar panel cookers and Heaven’s Flame solar box ovens. In particular, we cooked rice salad and an Indian dish made of mixed vegetabes and spices.

2, 3, 4, June 2017, Scarpellini Park in Pesaro. Non-profit Gulliver invited us to participate at Regional Fair of Reuse 2017 (https://www.fiera2017.com/). The Fair is at its fifth edition and hosts stands of private citizens willing to exchange or sell every kind of objects that they do not use anymore. Moreover, the Fair hosts every year non-profit organisations, comprising  the sport organisations and organizes initiatives for children and youngsters (among which there is mini basket), initiatives promoting volunteering and the sensitization on the issue represented by waste management (for example, this year, there was the conference “Ridurre si può e si deve).

During the Fair, our association prepared a tiny stand, thanks to which we managed to organize a workshop relating to the construction of Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light panel cookers and a demonstration of solar cooking using two Heaven’s Flame and two Copenhagens.

With the youngsters and adults interested to the activities, we built Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light panel cookers using vegetal paper, vinyl glue, aluminum, hemp twines and clothespins. The experience was really great.In three days we built 8 Copenhagens and we donate other two to the participants !

With our 4 solar ovens, 2 Heavens’ Flame and 2 Copenhagens, we cooked an Indian dish made of mixed vegetables and spices and we also cooked rice saad and warmed “piadina”. We managed to cook a good quantity of food and to give it to taste to the organizers of the Fair and to the participants !
