The first “Ecoschool” in Bulgaria is a fact now. It is a joint project of ECOPACK Bulgaria and Teach for Bulgaria. Special educational materials have been developed for 1 to 12 graders. Throughout the year school kids will discuss different aspect of human impact on nature. Special attention will be paid to recycling and separate waste collection and its benefits for the society and environment.

The pilot project is carried out in 132 SOU Vanya Voinova in Sofia. The first school day celebration was attended by officials from the Ministry of Education and municipality. Special guest was the Minister of Youth and Sports.

The eco corner created by DeConi will provide basic information on nature protection related issues and will further motivate kids to take part in the green initiatives throughout the school year.
