The olympics of ecology for young people: the first national online ecology competition aimed at first and second grade secondary school children.

The Ecology Laboratory – Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences and Technologies and the Museum on Ecology of Mediterranean Ecosystems of the University of Salento, in collaboration with the Italian Society of Ecology (SItE) and other partners, promotes and organizes every year EcologicaCup, a competition online national ecology for lower and upper secondary school students.
