Environmental Association Za Zemiata
Za Zemiata (ZZ) is an independent non-profit non-governmental organization established in 1995 to work for environmental justice and sustainable and equitable life on our planet, without exploitation of people or nature. Za Zemiata promotes sustainable solutions in energy and climate, zero waste practices, food sovereignty and organic farming, air quality and urban environment, strategic use of public funds to drive environmental protection and long-term wellbeing for people and other species alike.
We work through awareness raising and capacity building to mobilise and empower local communities to take action on a variety of environmental conflicts, e.g. unsustainable energy projects, air pollution, mining (gold, uranium, coal), waste incineration and landfills, damage of protected areas, tax justice, etc. We reach out to over 200 schools from all across Bulgaria with resource- and energy-saving initiatives and practical activities, using our teaching toolkits on energy and climate, smart waste management, food sovereignty and globalisation.
