The Ekopolis Foundation (Nadácia Ekopolis, known also as the Slovak Environmental Partnership) is the non-profit non-governmental organisation which supports active people and communities in their effort to pursuit of sustainable development, including cycling and non-motorized transportation. The foundation was established in 1991.
We are providing support to local communities, organisations and individuals who try to develop sustainable mobility and non-motorized transportation and tourism (building and marking of cycle routes and greenways, their development, promotion and advocacy). Two way of support:
- Financial – mainly grants
- Non-financial – consulting, expert work, advocating and facilitating.
In addition we implement our own programmes on sustainable mobility, like operation of ecological biketaxis Velotrixi in Slovak towns, expert work on non-motorized transportation, traffic calming, public spaces adjustments, etc.
