Title: The ECOCENTRE
The ECOCENTRE is based on the farm to promote and to demonstrate environmentally-friendly technologies. It is the place where youth can see ecological technologies working in practice, thereby gaining an understanding that living and working in the countryside can be modern, attractive and economic. The ECOCENTRE focuses on sustainable building technologies, renewable energy, water conservation, and organic farming. The youths can find the practical knowledge about ecological every-day life and participate in workshops or lectures. The ECOCENTRE contributes towards popularising ecological technologies, lifestyles and shows how to protect the cultural and biological heritage of the Polish countryside.
