As a part of the project "Right to the Healthy Environment: Aarhus Centre in Zenica-Doboj Canton of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Knowledge Transfer from The Czech Republic" we were filming the short documentaries in areas involved. From the perspective of Aarhus Convention matters we focused on several cases interviewing local NGOs workers, experts, politicians and local inhabitants.
