Abstract

During our work we are going to introduce the following methods: using bioindication for high school education, popularizing an effective method for environmental education, providing exercise focused professional knowledge. The Belgian Ministry of Public Health started to use the Belgian Biotic Index method in 1978, which was tested by several laboratories, and used as the official biological water labeling method since 1984. BBI's simplified version, which can be used also for secondary school education, is the BISEL, which is fast, does not require huge investment, and integrates the taxonomy, the ecology and chemistry. We use zoological taxonomy to determinate macroinvertebrate taxa. Familiarizing the program for wider audience should be a good opportunity to educate natural science in a more effective, exercise focused way. Our most important result is that these can be executed by high school students, who should gain routine on field work and water quality monitoring; therefore we can help their environmentally aware development. One of the most important tasks of these schools is to create the chance for the new generation, so they will be able to operate local communities in a sustainable way.
