We are „Pavučina“ („spider web“ in English). We are the Network of Environmental Education Centres in the Czech Republic.
Pavučina arose from the need of deeper cooperation. It was founded by 8 organizations in 1996. Today, there are almost 50 member organizations.
What holds us together?
We advocate the environmental education nationwide and its irreplaceable role in education, sustainable development and environmental protection.
We set the guidelines for excellence in environmental education and help each other to fulfil them.
We learn from each other, exchange experience and information and go through professional development together.
We support each other as a community sharing the same goals and values.
We organize joint national projects and programs considered too big for individual member organizations.
