The safety and well-being of the environment is not merely a national issue nor can it be an isolated issue for one community. The interconnectedness of our ecosystem dictates that the environment is a transnational issue turning all nations into a single community.

Although the issue is global in scope, means to address environmental challenges can be effectively established on the local level. The Via Foundation supports community initiatives focused on the protection and revitalization of the environment in Central Europe.

The past 16 years have witnessed a drastic improvement of the environment in the Czech Republic. Where once, the communist government would routinely advise parents to keep their children indoors due to the hazardous air quality, locally-initiated controls have successfully improved conditions so that now individuals may enjoy such a basic freedom as clean air. Via strives to build upon this type of success promoting local organizations working toward a healthier, cleaner future.
