Environmental School Polku
Providing activities and experiences for learners of all ages
Invite an environmental educator to your school, daycare or children's event. Visit Polku with your group or take part in training for educators. In the metropolitan area (Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Kauniainen and in Kirkkonummi) the advice service is financed by HSY (Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority).
Polku also provides services for those outside the metropolitan area.
Book an environmental educator for consulting, training, or teaching, or for playing with children. These services are offered either at your own facilities or at our training facilities at Kalasatama in Helsinki.
Environmental advice is offered e.g. in the following subjects: reducing waste, sustainable consumption choices, waste sorting and making operations more ecological.

Environmental School Polku has many different kinds of bookable exhibitions concerning sustainable development. These exhibitions have been produced as part of various projects, as well as with Reuse Centre’s own funds.
The exhibitions are available free of charge to schools, daycares and other similar organisations, although we charge a fee for lost or damaged posters or other parts. You must also pay for delivery expenses for exhibitions sent through the mail. Alternatively, you can pick up the exhibitions from the office of Polku at Kalasatama.
