What is Healthy Landscape

Who are the activities addressed to?

The "Healthy Landscape" project virtually aims at all people who influence the landscape and environment. The main target group are farmers because they have intensive, large-scale and everyday impact on the landscape.

Part of our activities aims at children and young people - if we want to change an human attitude to the landscape it is necessary to learn children to percieve the landscape and respect it like our home. Besides that, we work with students of ecology and agriculture, public administration bodies, NGO's, scientists etc.

What is the aim of the project and it's key activities?

The aim of the project is to establish a network of educational and advisory centres. This network provides complex and qualified counselling and education supporting environmentally friendly management of nature and landscape.

Key activities are on-farm visits and following counselling for farmers. These visits enable us to get a detailed knowledge of specific aspects of a farm as a base for an individual approach to counselling.For students we prepare farm excursions and practices focused on principles and importance of environmentally friendly farming. Children (basic and nursery schools) can visit special learning programmes about the landscape in Station „Help to Nature“.
