25 Years of Bicocca: BioMonitoring-MIB: Let’s get our hands dirty!

To mark the 25th anniversary of the University of Milan-Bicocca, the University is celebrating with an entire year of events.
It celebrates the long journey of growth that since June 1998 has never stopped and has come to the present, with nearly 40 thousand students, more than 1,000 professors and researchers and 144 thousand square meters of campus.
Also included in those square meters are the 7,000 square meters of the Vivaio Bicocca, which is responsible for the care and enhancement of biodiversity.
The Bicocca Nursery also participates in the celebrations and offers several activities aimed at everyone: students, citizenry, interested and curious.

BioMonitoring-MIB: Let’s get our hands dirty! is a review of events where theory and practice come together for a complete experience. Not only education on biodiversity, but also activities with which to get your hands dirty to be able to better understand and protect it.
