Great beasts in our country
Over the past 200 years, great beasts have been exterminated in a greater part of Europe as a result of human persecution. Their area has been narrowed to several mountain areas in Central and Eastern Europe. In Slovakia, their condition improved when they began to be partially protected. In spite of this, their presence in or country is still fraught with many myths. Should we be afraid of them?

Bioplasts - the end of the plastic age?
At the time when our planet is slowly shrouding in plastic waste islands in the seas, which enter our food chain through fish that involuntarily swallow them and heaps of plastic product are slowly overwhelming us, Professor Alexy came with an amazing invention. Together with his team from the STU he invented a plastic material, which decomposes itself, it is not made of fossil materials (crude oil) and it is possible to use waste to produce its main components.

Materialism, overproduction and hyper-consumption, among other factors, brought humans to a crossroads. The direction which we should take requires a change in thinking, feeling and action not only in relation to nature.
Artists whose work appeals from apathy and scepticism to civic activism inspire us to change our relationship with nature through aesthetic experiences (positive and negative) that we acquire in contact with nature (even devastated).

Impact of oil palm cultivation on rainforests
At first glance, the issue of growing oil palm and consumption of palm oil does not concern us, Slovaks. If anyone starts telling you about the fact that by consuming palm oil you support the destruction of the rainforests, you imagine that the nearest rainforest is so far away that it simply does not concern you at all. But the opposite is true.
