The global impact of pesticide use has long been too much of a burden on the environment and nature, and especially on human health

In order to raise the awareness of the citizens of the Republic of Croatia about the effects of pesticides on human health and the environment, we recorded 3 educational movies, with support from Global Greengrants Fund.

The first of them is bilingual, in Croatian and English, in order to reach as wide an audience as possible, and it will be premiered on the Earth Trek’s Youtube channel on Thursday, August 6, 2020. at 10:00 a.m.

The guest of the first show is the Malta based German entrepreneur Andreas Wil Gerdes, who brought ideas for the recovery and progress to Croatia and connected with Croatian entrepreneurs and activists.

Andreas is interested in bringing progress to Croatia, with ideas and innovative solutions that are simple and scalable.


In the interview, he talks about the importance of boosting health/ immune systems. He shares his experiences and believes in Croatia’s unique potential e.g. living a healthy and happy life. He paid special attention to the Covid-19 crisis.

“The goal of filming these educational movies is not to make money, but only to reach as many viewers as possible, in order to raise citizens’ awareness of the consequences of pesticide use, and encourage relevant institutions to react quickly and adapt to European trends, and enacting the laws and strategies which are protecting human health, nature and environment,” said Natalija Svrtan, the president of the Earth Trek NGO.
