Dona finds a good home, three years on.

They say dogs, by some magical process, are given the names which suit them best. Dona could not be anything other than the prima donna. She has everything going for her, fabulous looks, intelligence, character.

Dona was born in February 2013 in Jelsa. Her mother Simba is a beautiful golden retriever, so it is not surprising that Dona and her siblings were all born beautiful. Homes were found for most of the puppies. One, Lord, was destined to stay in the family and, true to his name, become the Top Dog in Jelsa, the canine king who watches over his compatriots, polices the streets and keeps order.

With the tourist season approaching, which meant that there was no room for extra dogs, Dona was the last one in need of a home. Via the internet, a potential owner from northern Croatia responded to the plea. But when he refused to provide his full name and address, suspicions were aroused. Dona was born into a loving family which cares for its pets. Delivering her to a street corner in an unknown town to an unkown person was out of the question. So she stayed, but urgently needed to be moved.

By June 2013, the situation was getting desperate. So, Eco Hvar came to the rescue, offering a temporary home, in the hope that a good permanent situation would not be far away.

She was terrified as she approached her new territory, and for some time sat in a corner eyeing her new companions with fear. After about half an hour, she perked up and accept water, then food. Life was not so bad after all. It did not take her long to establish her position as a strong contender for pack leader, in a gentle, feminine kind of way.

She was happy to make friends with all around her. Harley was her Big Friend.

Young newcomers were made welcome, provided they knew their place!

Dona loved her outdoor life, but was always adaptable, and settled in well when she was kept in the house for a while.

From the start, Dona was treated with love, and has never known anything else. And she has always responded with love. So it was no surprise that when Mariana and Toni came visiting, looking to give a dog a good home, mutual love arose at first sight.

Mariana and Toni, true dog lovers, would have liked to take more of the dogs, especially Bobi, but their rational limit was one.

So, on April 13th 2016, Dona took her leave of her friends, and set off with enthusiasm for her new life.

As she went off to her new home, her former companions were sad to see her leave. It was a day of new experiences for her, particularly her first journey on the ferry. But she coped bravely and settled in well. A happy outcome for all concerned!

  • The European week of skills gained through the vocational education and training is a yearly campaign launched in 2016. It was created and its purpose still is to promote vocational education and training by organizing various activities and manifestations throughout entire Europe on local, regional and the National level. The campaign gathers providers of educational and skills training services, civil society organizations, national agencies, business associates, union and wider population with the main goal of highlighting the benefits of vocational education and training as well as presenting a wide range of possibilities in every European country.

  • U današnje vrijeme kada smo svi zabrinuti zbog visokih računa za grijanje i okoliš, mnogi se okreću potrazi za jeftinijim i obnovljivim izvorima energije. Jednostavna obnovljivost omogućuje jeftinu cijenu drvene biomase, a njezino korištenje dodatno potiču vrhunske ekološke karakteristike.

  • Da je Hrvatska bogata prirodnim ljepotama i da je posebitost upravo velika sačuvanost prirodnih oaza, svjesni su i Hrvati. No ono što možda s jedne strane veseli, a s druge zabrinjava jest to da su naše prirodne znamenitosti zapravo najpopularnije daleko izvan granica Lijepe naše.

  • Opće je poznato da svaki potrošački proizvod na ovaj ili onaj način utječe na okoliš. Međutim, prosječan potrošač nije svjestan i ne zna koji proizvod ima manje ili više utjecaja na životnu sredinu nego drugi. Bilo koji proizvod koji se proizvodi, koristi ili uklanja na način koji značajno smanjuje štetu zagađenja životne sredine, može se smatrati ekološki prihvatljivim.

  • Pripreme za zimske godišnje odmore, odlazak na jedno od poznatih svjetskih skijališta i uživanje u (nećete vjerovati koliko brzo) nadolazećim zimskim radostima, već su u punom jeku.

  • Apeli usmjereni na očuvanje okoliša nas svakodnevno podsjećaju na važnost pozornosti o okruženju u kome egzistiramo. Bez obzira na njihovu učestalost, činjenica je da ne činimo sve što je u našoj moći da udišemo kvalitetniji zrak ili jedemo zdraviju hranu.

  • Briga za zaštitu okoliša sa razlogom sve više raste, jer je stanje u kom se nalazi naša životna sredina postalo alarmantno. Postoji mnogo razloga zbog kojih se trebamo zapitati kako možemo pozitivno da utječemo na naš okoliš i naš dom. U narednom tekstu saznajte kako možete zaštiti okoliš, a da to i ne osjetite.

  • Ako ste poštovalac prirode i zalažete se za njeno očuvanje, onda se sigurno pitate koja su to mjesta na svijetu koja dijele vaš stav. Možda upravo sada odlučujete gdje ćete putovati uskoro, a mi smo spremni priteći u pomoć i otkriti vam koja su to ekološka, a ujedno i najljepša svjetska ostva.

  • Ako želite da postanete dio “zelenog pokreta” i da svojim djelovanjem pozitivno utječete na svoju životnu sredinu, srećom pa to više ne znači da morate da žrtvujete boje i kvalitet farbe koju koristite, pošto danas postoji odličan izbor ekoloških farbi koje pritom dolaze i u predivnim bojama.

  • Me?‘u prvim aktivnostima projekta „LORA - laboratorij održivog razvoja" okupljanje je škola koje ?‡e sudjelovati u edukativnim aktivnostima. 28. kolovoza 2019. poslali smo stoga poziv osnovnim školama za sudjelovanje u projektu. Poziv je bio otvoren do 20. rujna 2019., a prijavilo se čak 77 osnovnih škola iz svih krajeva Hrvatske, zbog čega smo iznimno ponosni!

     

  • Gra?‘anska inicijativa „Dani kolektivne sadnje drve?‡a u Hrvatskoj" od 25. do 27. listopada 2019. godine organizira sadnju drve?‡a pod nazivom „Zasadi drvo, ne budi panj". Cilj je akcije potaknuti gra?‘ane, udruge, tvrtke i ustanove da u tri dana diljem Hrvatske na privatnim i javnim površinama posade što više stabala kako bi doprinijeli ozelenjivanju urbanih sredina i istaknuli važnost i brojne dobrobiti urbanog zelenila.

  • S obzirom na to da je prošli tjedan bio prvi tjedan škole, da su učitelji imali obaveza oko raspodijele knjiga i organizacije te je u svim školama krenula obrazovna reforma, više zainteresiranih učitelja nas je zamolilo da produžimo rok za prijave škola za sudjelovanje u projektu „LORA - laboratorij održivog razvoja".

  • Izradit ?‡emo 21 obrazovni program za osnovne škole, temeljen na specifičnim potrebama i zahtjevima svake škole. Obrazovni program za održivi razvoj uključuje i višemjesečni, samostalni rad učenika na projektima održivog razvoja u svojim lokalnim sredinama.
