Environmental Centre

The Environmental Centre provides direct communication with citizens on issues of environmental protection and the work of Zelena akcija/FoE Croatia. It also organises various educational programmes (lectures and workshops) aimed at the wider public.

The primary task of the Environmental Centre is to mediate information to citizens on the widest range of environmental protection topics and the work of Zelena akcija. The Environmental Centre is open to inquiries from all citizens, as well as institutions and associations that are involved in education through their work (schools, libraries, kindergartens, other information centers, etc.). All interested can contact us by phone, e-mail or visit us in the offices of Zelena akcija.

In cooperation with other programmes of Zelena akcija, the Environmental Centre is involved in organising various lectures and practical workshops for citizens, such as home composting workshops, solar collector workshops, seed eco-seminars, etc.

The Centre is involved in the preparation and publication of free educational materials for citizens, both in print and digital form. In recent years, video tutorials have gained a lot of popularity.

The Environmental Centre maintains a collection of printed materials and brochures on various environmental issues. Many of these brochures can be passed on to interested citizens and organisations, even in larger quantities.

The Environmental Centre has since 2009 been operating a Bicycle Workshop or Bike Kitchen (in Croatian "Biciklopopravljaona" or "BicPop) which is a unique voluntary bicycle repair service where everyone interested can repair their bikes by themselves or by the help of volunteers. In addition to educating citizens and by popularizing the use of bicycles as a form of environmentally friendly transport, the Bike Kitchen collects and reuses donated old bicycles and cycling parts, thus contributing to the preservation of valuable resources. Since 2016, the Bike Kitchen has also contributed to the integration of refugees in Croatia, through a programme of donating bicycles to refugees.
