„The most dangerous feature of this global atheistic civilization is its pride. The pride of someone who is led only by the logic of his/her wealth making him to stop honouring the work of nature and our ancestors, to stop honouring them by principle, treating them at most as another possible source of profit.“
- from the speech of the Czech President Václav Havel at the opening ceremony of the 2000 Forum in 2010.
Clean and healthy environment is vital to life.
The right of all citizens (not only those who can afford it because of their above-standard income) to a quality environment is based on the constitution. Therefore, in our own interest, we should be in the extent to which the constitution is respected in this area.
Environmental issues are not only connected to our own lives, but also the lives of the next generation. Although this is well known, the situation is steadily worsening because of tracking the short-term goals and profits accumulating the assets of narrow groups of people regardless of the future, the environment, or someone else's situation.
We would like to break out of the folktale: "Mainly, to do well before I die, no matter what happens after my death". On the contrary, we would like to head for a sense of responsibility for what is left "after us".
That is why we focus our project on awareness raising which should lead to awareness of the impact of our activities on future generations. At the same time, we would like to draw attention to the benefits of ecological and responsible behaviour and to the apparent link between the quality of the environment and the health of the population. Clean environment is a basic prerequisite for harmonious development of individuals and sustainable development of society.
Main topics of the section
What does the concept of the environment mean and how we understand it.
State of the environment, our rights and obligations in relation to the environment.
Today and every day we allow and tolerate that in the interest of the economic benefits of the welfare and well-being of much of the population, the most valuable thing we have - nature in many places of our planet - was destroyed and looted.
Who, where and how destroys the environment? Let's take a look at what's happening around us, and do not tolerate the destruction of the environment in which we live.
Examples of environmental protection, activism, education, organic farming, green architecture, new friendly technologies, life in harmony with nature.
