Podil Environmental Association
What are we looking for?
To present a path from a public organization of local importance to influence at the national level, performing some functions of state bodies (in times of crisis in the country) and then grow to an analytical center that has unique scientific results that are of interest to the world scientific community. At the same time, it is worth noting that all successful activities include three components: professional skills of each participant in narrow field, modern equipment, stress resistance. All work is carried out exclusively for international grants, without support from the state. It is also worth noting that in the grants received, we did not claim salary or rent of premises. However, now, due to the evacuation and relocation of all equipment, we need to be placed in a safe place and provide continuous environmental monitoring — for this we are looking for additional financial support, international partners in organizing further scientific research on the impact of military operations on various components of nature.
