EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE
An activity that allows young people to:

- familiarize themselves with the presence of olive oil and table olives in their school canteen and learn to ask for it
- appreciate traditional flavours and integrate them into their daily lives and seek them everywhere, at school, at home, on a stroll
The most successful of our activities that fall into this category are "Scholatsio" (Greece) and "Bimboil" (Italy).
