The Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation helps people take care of the environment. In 2002, it started the tradition of the Tree of the Year contest, a model that was later adopted by other European countries. The Foundation also seeks to involve people in tree planting programmes, in creating quality public spaces, in traffic calming initiatives, and in attracting sustainable tourism and cycling. It is located in the Open Garden Centre it has built in Brno, Czech Republic.
