From January 31 to February 27, the All-Russian online Olympiad on Ecology and the Surrounding world for schoolchildren of grades 1-9 will be held on the Учи.ру. educational platform. The Olympiad is held in support of the national project "Ecology". The organizers of the eco-educational initiative for the third year in a row are the ANO "National Priorities" and the Учи.ру. educational platform with the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia.
This year there are 9 tasks in the Olympiad that will tell interesting facts about the surrounding world and ecology, and 3 of them integrate the themes of the national project "Ecology": The interactive format will help in a playful way to tell children about such important topics as biodiversity, waste sorting, reforestation and prevention of forest fires. The tasks will not require in-depth knowledge from the child, only logic and an intuitive understanding of the relationship between nature and human actions are needed.
To participate in the online competition, a student must register on the website https://ecomir.uchi.ru / or it can be done by teachers or parents.
For reference: the national project "Ecology" has been implemented since 2019 on the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin. It includes nine federal projects covering various areas of the environmental agenda. At the same time, the most important direction of the national project is environmental education of the population, improving the ecological culture of Russians. In support of the national project "Ecology", educational events and campaigns are held annually, for example, the waste paper collection campaign #BoomBattle and the campaign on clearing the banks "Volga Day", which in 2023 will be transformed into a "Marathon of Rivers".
