    NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION

We live in the world that is getting more endangered and polluted each and every day. And we are not sufficiently aware of this fact as we take for granted many things given to us by Earth: drinking tap water, the lawn in front of the house, a wonderful waterfall on a trip on a Saturday, for example. We are surrounded by immense beauty that we don’t appreciate enough.

Vision and mission:

We would like to emphasize the values of natural goods, especially water; that is why we decided to create an international project with the topic of water.

The main purpose of the project is to raise public awareness about water issues in Slovenia, as well as in other parts of the world, provide solutions and work on its development. For this purpose, we partnered with ministries for environment from Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia, and started with first regional awarding: responsible towards water in several categories (corporate – all sizes, national projects, and individual projects). In the mentioned countries, we also started with regional competition in primary schools. This year’s topic is: WaterWaste.

Our mission is to change and improve the habits of people, improve the economy and help the business sector.

We inform you that we have launched the first international regional competition RESPONSIBLE TOWARDS WATER. The competition is intended for emphasizing the importance of water as a vitally important good for all living beings on our planet. With this competition, we have opened the doors to a new era of development with emphasis on raising awareness of society and each individual who must take responsibility for his or her actions regarding environment and regarding this strategic and public natural good.

Everyone can apply to this competition who, in any way, contributes to a rational use of drinking water and its improvement, take care for treatment, cleaning and re-use of waste water, everyone who regards water footprint with their actions and understands the importance of water cycle and water sources, and everyone who provides new technological innovations for reaching the goals of sustainable development in this area of work (see more in attachment).

The international competition takes place in four countries – Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Austria.

The competition is supported by governmental institutions; ministries of Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia:
· Ministrstvo za okolje in prostor, Slovenija,
· Ministarstvo zaštite okoliša i energetike, Hrvaška,
· Ministarstvo poljoprivrede i zaštite životne sredine, Srbija.

The categories include economic, non-economic, civil, educational and other initiatives in the following areas:
· corporate activities
· national projects
· individual projects

In cooperation with the mentioned ministries, the examples of good practice will be awarded and adequately highlighted in public.

The competition is open until 31. 5. 2017.

Entry fee is free of charge.

You can read more about it in attachment and on our website: www.bledwf.com (see TENDERS).
