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.
