WWF in Slovakia contributes to the mission of WWF Central and Eastern Europe

Our aim is to respond to environmental problems, offer solutions and fulfill the vision of prosperity, sustainability and protection of natural values of the WWF Central and Eastern Europe (WWF Central and Eastern Europe), which is the "green heart of Europe".

WWF-CEE has been operating in Slovakia since March 2014. Until April 2019, WWF-CEE was called WWF Danube-Carpathian Program. Our activities focus on the support of effective care for the protection of areas, river basins, and long-term sustainable use of natural resources, e.g. sound forest and agricultural management.

We provide professional activities, contribute to the popularization and education in the field of nature protection, we cooperate with expert institutions, state administration bodies, non-governmental organizations and the public.

We strive to maximize the opportunities and minimize the threats that the market economy brings to the natural environment by seeking long-term solutions. We consider tackling climate change to be the biggest challenge in the world today.
