Official launch of the book "Du labo à la classe 2, Écologie de la santé" (From the lab to the classroom 2, Health ecology)

This Wednesday, January 31 at 5pm on the Triolet campus of the University of Montpellier, Sophie Béjean, Rector of the Occitanie academic region, Rector of the Montpellier academy, Chancellor of the Universities, accompanied by Philippe Augé, President of the University of Montpellier, and Florent Guhl, Regional Director of Food, Agriculture and Forestry, will attend the official presentation of the book "Du labo à la classe 2: Ecologie de la santé".

At the end of three years' work, 89 teachers and researchers will officially receive a copy of the book they co-authored on the theme of Health Ecology. 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). Like its predecessor on evolution, it aims 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.

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).
