Ashoka Fellow
Poland
Fellow Since 1997
    This description of Jacek Bozek's work was prepared when Jacek Bozek was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1997.
    Introduction
    Jacek Bozek is building a citizen's movement to preserve Poland's rivers and to stop ecologically irresponsible development projects. His project thus far has focused mainly on Poland's largest river, the Vistula, which is one of Europe's last great "untamed" rivers. However, Jacek is expanding his work to other rivers in Poland and is working to export his model to the remaining natural river eco-systems throughout the continent.
