The Polish Ecological Club founded in Krakow in 1980 as a non-profit, non-governmental organization opposing treating the environment as an owner-less, valueless property. Our main goal has been the practical implementation of the sustainable development through raising environmental awareness of the society , thus environmental education has been the first of our tasks. Making people aware that the quality of life depends on achieving the balance between technological development , humanistic values and wise stewardship of the earth's natural resources together with preserving the natural, historical and cultural heritage still is our main challenge.
