According to the Sendzimir Foundation, a statistical Pole drinks over 90 litres of bottled water annually, of which only every fourth plastic bottle goes to recycling, and the remaining bottles go to landfill, where every complete decomposition takes about 800 years! By drinking tap water, we protect the environment!
With our activities we intend to raise environmental awareness among our guests, especially among children and young people, and to encourage ecological activities by promoting simple, human and environmentally friendly solutions.

A distributor with public, filtered tap water is located in the Cowshed next to the entrance to the Restaurant.

Those Numbers impressively illustrate how labour-intensive the year 2018 was for the Krzyżowa Foundation. Almost 30,000 participant days and 350 projects were spent in Krzyżowa: seminars, workshops, training courses and international school and extracurricular exchanges (around 4,300 participants from 31 countries around the world took part in the exchanges alone). 150 guided tours through the historical sites of Krzyżowa for almost 10,000 people. Dozens of events in surrounding schools, preschools and other educational institutions for almost 5,000 inhabitants of Lower Silesia ...

2018 is a year of important anniversaries, including the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and the regaining of the independence of Poland and many other people from Europe. We have often used the concept of freedom in this year's projects. We allowed ourselves to reflect on the value of freedom and how it should be nurtured.

The Foundation also celebrated an important anniversary. On 11 June 1998, Prime Minister Jerzy Buzek and Chancellor Helmut Kohl solemnly opened the newly renovated centre of the International Youth Meeting Centre. The memory of this event led us to witnesses of history - to participants in those events, including Prime Minister Jerzy Buzek. Their memories were recorded in the form of video films and complemented the memories of the celebrations 20 years ago.

On 13-15 February teams of employees of the Krzyżowa Foundation and our Berlin partner Kreisau-Initiative e.V. took part in the annual conference. This time the meeting took place in Krzyżowa.

The program of the meeting included workshops on courage to change, conducted by an external trainer, training on "Deep Democracy" training on how to talk to young people about difficult topics and how to deal with conflicts, as well as workshops on transformative learning.

On 02-10.02.2019 will be held in Krzyżowa XVII Master Course "Students of Masters". We will host over 130 people (professors, students and their parents). On 07.02, 08.02 and 09.02 at 19:00 parallel in the ballroom and multifunctional room, concerts will be held:

  • ballroom: violin, viola with piano accompaniment
