ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

Getliņi is a company open to the public. The daily free excursions provided by Getliņi are visited by several schools, kindergartens, company teams and groups of friends, entrepreneurs and foreign guests. The company is one of those which are shown as a model to foreign diplomats, ministers, governors and other prominent public and guests of Riga.
We believe that by telling, showing and sharing our experience, we help the young generation to gain proper idea of why taking care of the environment is good, why waste must be sorted, what the life cycle is of waste, why every piece of waste is a resource, why it is necessary to refrain from buying useless things and take care of the waste reduction, as well as many others issues related to the environmental safety and sustainability of our country.
Annually, Getliņi is visited by 250–300 tour groups, workshop participants and other interested visitors. In total, they amount to 5500–6000 people a year who visit us, participate in environmental education activities and gain some new knowledge.
