Education

One of the objectives of GIWK Sp. z o.o. is supporting children and youths as regards the natural environment. We familiarise the youngest residents of Gdansk with the issues connected with the protection of natural water resources, the Baltic Sea as well as with the renewable energy. We co-operate with non-governmental organisations, institutions and enterprises that deal with the protection of the environment. We also make artistic groups engaged in common tasks. We have been taking particular care of the Coastal Belt where the protection zone of water intakes of Czarny Dwór and Zaspa are located.

We invite schools to submit their participation in the proposed activities.

Do not use a garden hose to perform the task. - Do not water your garden with drinking water - not because it is forbidden but because it is an act of wastage. Use water from a well or rainwater to sprinkle the garden. - Avoid watering your garden when the wind blows or when it is hot - the water evaporates much faster, then. - Sprinkling your garden is more efficient - it helps to save water. - Cover the watered area with cut grass or with leaves - it helps to limit the evaporation of water.
