The Centre for Environmental Activities "Zrodla" is a nonprofit organization with a mission to educate students, teachers, and the general public about local environmental issues, and to expand their capacity to act for a more sustainable Poland.
The members of Zrodla believe that it is important not only to work directly in conservation and welfare efforts, but to instill in people a love for their surroundings and their fellow inhabitants. In doing this they ensure that their work will be carried on and expanded for future generations.
Zrodla was founded in 1993, as a branch of the Interacademic Ecological Lobby and was registered as an association in February, 1997. It has a status of "public benefit organization" (OPP) which is Polish equivalent of 501(c)(3) code. The association is based in Lodz, Warsaw and Krakow
This organization works mainly to increase public awareness about conservation, biodiversity loss and sustainable living issues.
Some of their activities include:
• Environmental camps;
• daily workshops at schools;
• "Exotic Prisoners" campaign to protect exotic animals;
Karolina Baranowska (Environmental Education and regional Workshops); Krzysztof Wychowałek (Administration and Finances)
For other net participants we can offer an expert guidance through trained staff, give an expert opinion, procure expert information and establish new contacts in the field of our work.
