Plants Filter Islands

Social impact on the natural aquastic environment

GlobalGiving is a nonprofit organization that supports other nonprofits by connecting them with donors and companies. Since 2002, it has been helping trusted, community-led organizations around the world access the tools, training and support they need to make our world a better place.

“Making the world a better place” and involving the community in this is also the goal of our institute that works to protect the water environment and popularize new food production technologies. Common values united the people of our organization and GlobalGiving and enabled the implementation of the „Plant Filtration Islands” project to begin in March 2024.

The aim of the project is to activate the local community, non-governmental organizations and companies to engage in environmental protection, in particular to encourage the inhabitants of Wrocław to take actions that improve the state of water. 

The project is an example of a grass-roots initiative showing integration and equality of environments and generations in solving the problem of water pollution, including the Odra River, on which we live. It will involve developing an original design of a filtration island, building test islands, launching them on the river and testing their effectiveness in the water purification process. 

Primary and secondary school students, teachers, company employees, and residents of Wrocław and the surrounding area will be involved in the project activities. Together, using positive energy, knowledge and experience, we will design, build and moor 5 islands on the Odra River; all under the watchful eye of the team from our institute.
