Enroll your school in the environmental education program!

Schools in Romania have a chance to actively participate in environmental protection, enrolling in the third edition of the national project of awareness and collection "School of Ecoterrestrials”, Organized by ECOTIC and ECOTIC BAT.

As a result of the epidemiological context and to support schools, the “School of Ecoterrians” project, which started in the fall of 2019, will continue until June 2021.

From 2 October 2020, schools are invited to a new registration session to be part of the national project to raise awareness and collect waste electrical equipment and used batteries. The project focuses on 2 main directions: the awareness one, in which the participating schools will implement ecological education activities based on online video lessons provided by the organizers and the one for collecting waste electrical and electronic equipment, light bulbs, light sources and waste batteries and accumulators.

Schools can register by accessing the dedicated form available here.

The award mechanism and details related to the development of the project are available on

Schools enrolled in the project will receive a set of eco-information and education materials and a set of containers in which they will be able to collect waste electrical and electronic equipment, lighting fixtures and waste batteries and accumulators.

The activities have been adapted to the current situation, and can be done both online and in class. At the same time, the collection will take place in parallel with the lessons, from the moment of receiving the materials related to the project.

"We decided to come to the aid of students and teachers in these difficult times. In this sense, we adapted the lessons and practical activities so that they can be done online, from home and we decided to extend the project by another school year. We believe that now, more than ever, is the time to make future generations aware of the importance of environmental protection and separate collection. " says Valentin Negoiță, president of ECOTIC.
