Workshop recommended for School of Art & Design students and teachers.
After a short train ride from Masarykovo nádraží, we will go for a walk to the region of Klanovice near Prague. We will be led by the environmental expert Ladislav Trylč and multi-faceted educator Marie Havranková. We will explore the specificities of the local landscape through storytelling: from the poor biodiversity of a field path due to intensive agriculture to the variety of lifeforms found in the Klanovice forest. Together, we will do particular activities in support of biodiversity such as planting seeds and installing a birdhouse.
What to bring:
Comfortable shoes and clothes that can get dirty, water and snacks, a sketchbook (optional) and good mood.
Bring your travel card (litačka) if you have one.
Train tickets for students will be taken care of.
Ladislav Trylč studied environmental protection at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Charles University and a field of study focused on waste management at the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague. Waste has always accompanied him throughout his professional activities to date. He spent 13 years dealing with waste management regulations at the Ministry of the Environment, and now works in a private company dealing with the take-back of waste electrical equipment.
In addition to the field of waste, Ladislav Trylč is also involved in the field of environmental protection more widely, for example he is actively involved in the project of the non-profit organization Gengel, which strives to preserve old, regional, or family varieties of farm crops as part of the common cultural heritage.
He gardens for a long time, plants trees, collects littering or realizes small projects to increase biodiversity in the landscape.
