We want as many teachers as possible to lead children in their day-to-day lessons to create a nature-friendly society, and as many parents as possible to rediscover the magic of games in nature and to spend more time with their children outside.
TEREZA started with grazing 3 goats, 17 sheep and practical protection of the Prokopské Valley in Prague 1979. Today, TEREZA educates over 94,000 children and collaborates with over 750 schools while 5,000 parents take hints from us on how to spend time with their kids outside meaningfully. TEREZA has over 20 employees and dozens of volunteers around.
Gradually, we have focused on three long-term educational programs for schools with international auspices: Eco School, GLOBE and Forest at School. And let´s not forget the parents we are connected with within the Go Outside program.
TEREZA hosts a Region Coordination Office (RCO) of the GLOBE Program for Europe and Eurasia area. The staff of RCO supports countries in implementation of the GLOBE Program on national level and assist to international collaboration of schools and GLOBE partners. The annual meeting of GLOBE country coordinators, scientists and trainers is organized by the office together with the host country. The office is also involved in development of the GLOBE program worldwide together with the other world regions.
Apart from the GLOBE Program network, TEREZA is a member of Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
We educate children to create nature friendly society. TEREZA is a nongovernmental non-profit organization fostering environmental education in the Czech Republic since 1979.
