Abstract. 10 years with Planet Earth is the title of the 2016 INGV calendar for primary schools resulting from the review of a project conceived to support and complement 15 years of INGV dissemination activities with schools. We made 10 calendars together with and for primary schools, every year with a different subject related to a world in constant evolution. We have launched competitions asking children to send drawings on the themes chosen, to stimulate learning about Earth Sciences and Planet Earth dynamics. We intended to raise awareness on water resources availability, prevention of natural disasters and planet sustainability. For each competition, we chose the most significant drawings to be included in the yearly calendar about the Earth. The authors of drawings were awarded by scientists, journalists, artists and science communicators and even by a minister. Beyond the competitions, the drawings reflect impressions and thoughts, providing an opportunity to illustrate the children's point of view. From drawings arise a great sensitivity, consideration, responsiveness and respect for the Planet and positive feeling for Science. The project was made possible thanks to the teachers and to the wonderful students of more than 200 schools. We received about 10 000 drawings that have intrigued, touched, enchanted, and surprised us. We are grateful for all they have chosen to share with us.

We have launched competitions asking children to sent drawings on Earth Sciences and Earth dynamics. Beyond competitions, the drawings reflect impressions and thoughts, providing an opportunity to illustrate the children's point of view, as well as how scientific messages are received. From drawings emerge a great sensitivity, consideration and respect for Earth and positive feeling for Science.
