From April 11 - April 27 is Ecolympics Bootcamp! This will include a dozen events related to conservation and sustainability education, including workshops to improve Ecolympics for the revitalization of Ecolympics in the fall! A full list of events can be found below.

**The Ecolympics competition will be moved to the fall.**
Ecolympics is an annual resource conservation competition and community event series. College dorms and co-ops, public schools, and recently college offices compete to reduce electricity and water consumption. The community event series aims to educate and integrate larger conversations on sustainability into our community through films, guest speakers, service events, workshops, and more!

Why is Ecolympics moving to the fall?

• Conservation practices adopted during Ecolympics will last throughout the year resulting in more reductions!
• Show first years that Oberlin cares about the environment right away. & Learn how to get involved from the beginning!
• Better for the Oberlin community and public schools.
