Ecological centre Most and Kralupy nad Vltavou

The Ecological Centre Most for the Krušné hory (ECM) is an open information centre on the environment, which has been operating since 2000. The foundation of the ECM was initiated by the Czech Refinery Inc. according to the model of the Dutch centre DCMR in Rotterdam, which operates in the industrially burdened area of the Rhine delta. Due to its character (especially its connection to the dispatching departments of industrial enterprises in the region), the Ecological Centre Most is one of its kind in the Czech Republic. The ECM's activity is primarily based on the active provision of information to the public, ensuring effective communication with industrial companies, public administrations and the public. It is the only one in the country that has a free Green phone.

ECM was founded with the mission to gather available information about the environment of the region and to make the most of it accessible to the general public, to carry out advisory and awareness-raising activities in environmental issues and, last but not least, to provide key information multilingually with regard to cross-border transmission of information.

It seeks to transfer active information to normal environmental practice. The results of its fifteen years of existence are indicative of the fact that similar centres are a suitable complement in the existing system of ecological centres and Eco-advisory centres. In 2006, the proven model of providing environmental information was also successfully transferred to Kralupy nad Vltavou, where the operation of the Ecological Centre Kralupy nad Vltavou (ECK) began on 2nd October. This eco-centre also works under the professional hand of the Brown Coal Research Institute, Inc.

All information services are free of charge for the public. For more detailed information on the activities of the Ecological Centre, please visit the ECM or ECK website:
