Our mission is activation, motivation and cooperation of individuals, communities, policy makers, industry, businesses and researchers in the area of an efficient use of natural resources with the aim to reduce costs, preserve energy and create new green jobs. We educate and build opportunities for waste prevention, separate collection, recycling and composting of materials in waste.

Ways to help

There is only so much work and energy one can fit into a day, while on the other hand the need for environmental change is still rising. Come and help us catch up!

We are looking for volunteers in various topical areas, so check out the next few tabs and shoot us an email.

We are seeking help from designers to enrich our messages and open new channels.
If you can draw, paint, edit, do video; web, service or game design, you can make a difference.

Modern technology is a bottomless well. Come and help us drink from it.
Our uses center around web, GIS and OpenData, so if you can code or analyze, come and join our team.

Much of our work relies on efficient and meaningful communication. If you have a knack for storytelling or research, let us know!

Awesome, we hope you're having a blast! Let us know if you want to meet or help with our real-life events. We also regularly mentor students from a variety of countries.

Let us know if you have anything special in mind. If you don't identify with any of the above, you can always help us by promoting our work and/or donating.


Ecologists without Borders is a non-profit founded in 2009 and one of the leading Slovenian NGOs dedicated to improving the state of our environment — focusing on efficient resource use and active citizenship.

Most of our activities deal with waste at its source, but not all are limited to Slovenia. We're an active member of Zero Waste Europe, Let's do it world!, Break Free From Plastic and some other networks.

Together we can move faster, come and join us!
