Ecology Day

The Portuguese Ecological Society – SPECO, together with the European Ecological Federation – EEF, calls the United Nations to establish the Ecology Day on 14th September 2018. The date is symbolic as it refers to the publication date of the modern definition of the ecology concept by Haeckel. In fact, this proposal directly follows up on the celebration for its 150th anniversary organized by the EEF back in 2016 and concluded by a Round Table held at the European Parliament in Brussels.
