Let's change the appearance of our environment
Each of us can influence the change of the environment
We gathered in 2016 and together with like-minded people, nature lovers and bearers of positive changes, founded the citizens' association and the eco-social company Ekonaut. Our basic mission is to contribute to the improvement of the environment and the development of environmental awareness of citizens, which we achieve through numerous projects and activities in the field of agriculture, spatial planning, architecture and landscape architecture, social entrepreneurship, green economy and eco-design.
With the desire to improve the quality of life of the citizens of Belgrade and do something about the long-standing dissatisfaction with the situation in the field of environmental protection, we decided to found the association Ekonaut. We initiated the promotion of the practical concept of urban agriculture through gardening as a hobby, as well as advocating garden communities as tools for sustainable land management. We have organized numerous educational events in the field of gardening and beekeeping in the urban environment. We are particularly focused on the network of stakeholders, decision makers, civil sector, professional associations and other stakeholders with whom we work to create favorable frameworks in the application of various forms of sustainable management of open urban and peri-urban spaces.
Our activities include the implementation of projects in the field of sustainable development and environmental protection, promotion of ecology, environmental rights and sustainable resource management. We are also actively working on establishing a structured dialogue with decision makers at the national and local levels, organizing educational events and producing multimedia content. We cooperate with all sectors, we pay special attention to cooperation with educational institutions and activities that include work with children and youth.
In addition, we help companies that need a different approach to social responsibility to implement activities that will have a positive impact on the environment. We also offer a range of services including arranging and maintaining green areas (urban gardening), service formation and maintenance of beehives (city beekeeping), organizing corporate volunteering actions and creating floral decorations and eco gifts for clients.
