We invited the group of five colleagues from the partnership organisation Ekohome from Belarus to the Czech republic for one week. We were presenting them ecological cases dealt by our citizensˈ associations and what actions were taken in some particular situations to resolve them. What did catch Belarussiansˈ attention? They were surprised that some mayors or even officers defend civil rights and it is even possible to consult them with the experts from The Czech Environmental Inspectorate. These laws are much more efficient here than in Belarus and people can find support in court.
