We educate to reconnect our society with nature.
If we want our children to understand, appreciate and protect the more-than-human world we all depend on, we need to change what and how they learn.
TEREZA has been at the forefront of environmental and sustainability education in Czechia for a couple of decades. We started with grazing 3 goats, 17 sheep and hands-on protection of the Prokopské Valley in Prague in 1979.
Today, we educate over 180,000 children and collaborate with over 1200 schools and 11,000 parents all across our country.
We focus on long-term environmental education programs for schools, teachers and parents and help them empower children to enjoy nature, learn in natural environments, use inquiry-based approaches in science and develop environmental action competence for responsible citizenry.
