In the Sustainable Living daytrip we will visit the eco village Blatuša situated about hour and a half from Zagreb, where growing number of individuals and families decide to settle. Most of them build their homes from natural materials, such as cob, and arrange their houses in a way that they don’t require cooling during summer and only minimum heating during winter.

We will be immersed in this natural environment and we will see how it is possible to live closer to nature, glimpsing into organic production of food, organization of the village that is aspiring to sustainability, their daily life etc. Local lunch will be served (vegeterian and non-vegeterian option available), as well as a delicious desert and a homemade juice.
In their local ‘caffe’ we will talk about a range of subjects – you will have opportunity to ask everything you wanted to know about living sustainably.
This is a unique place in Croatia and surrounding countries, a great opportunity for learning about this topic directly from individuals who are actually living it!
