Where we work
In 1987 Milieukontakt started its first activities in Poland, supporting the dissident environmental organizations that were very active supporting the upcoming changes in Polish society at that time. Our first programs were mainly support through financial means and information sharing. After Poland countries like Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Russia followed and half way the nineties our activities expanded to Romania and Bulgaria.
