Rosa – About us
Non-Governmental Organization for environmental issues was foud in 1991 to inform about protection of nature and environment. The organization was originally found as a foundation and later transformed into NGO.
We aim to spread the ideas of living in harmony with nature and sustainable development principles. We provide education and public awarness and share experience on best practice. We are aware of urgent global issues and so we offer individual, local, regional and national solutions.
Motto: „Assist people to help nature“
Our activities are useful for public. The biggest target group are families with children, teachers, kids clubs and local producers.
