"From lab to classroom 2, health ecology".

After more than three years' work, 89 teachers and researchers were officially presented with a copy of their collective work "Du labo à la classe 2 : écologie de la santé" by Sophie Béjean, rectrice de la région académique Occitanie et de l'académie de Montpellier, Philippe Augé, président de l'Université de Montpellier and Florent Guhl, directeur régional de l'alimentation, de l'agriculture et de la forêt.

This book is the fruit of a new collaboration between teacher-researchers at the University of Montpellier and researchers (CNRS, IRD, CIRAD, INRAE) and secondary school teachers (SVT, biotechnology, agriculture). Its aim is to integrate resources from authentic, recent scientific articles into teaching sequences in secondary schools.

The "ready-to-use" activities on offer, with posters to support each article, are tools designed and thought through by the authors. They are designed to help practices evolve by adapting the most recent results of scientific research to the level of each secondary school class.

After a first opus devoted to evolution, this second book focuses on health ecology, which is at the heart of the scientific agenda and strategy of the University of Montpellier. This theme involves using the tools and concepts of ecology and evolutionary biology for the integrated and concerted study of human, animal and plant health.

The two-hundred-page book is distributed nationally to every lycée and collège in France, as well as to agricultural education establishments. Printed in 12,000 copies, it was financed by the University of Montpellier, and its layout and distribution were made possible by the collaboration of the APBG (association of biology and geology teachers).
