CESERE SelgeSiht is a research-oriented SME with social objectives that carries out projects, studies and practical activities related to sustainability and environmental awareness. In our activities, we follow and contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our mission is to promote environmental awareness and support the sustainability, safety and well-being of communities and the environment through research and environmental education activities.
Focus on Sustainability
Our main activities are to carry out projects and research related to sustainability and environmental awareness. We also develop and conduct active learning environmental education programs and provide environmental interest/hobby education. In addition, we conduct seminars, forest hikes and other practical activities in the nature to support environmental awareness.
In our education programs we focus on neighbourhood-based natural education and green technologies. We have opinion that neighbourhood-based natural education creates meaningful basis for future environmental attitudes. Green technologies bring global/international view to understanding of environmental problems and potential solutions.
History of CESERE | SelgeSiht
SelgeSiht OÜ was founded in 2018. Our activity began with research and development projects in the field of community and society security, as well as the development and implementation of environmental education programs for schools. Soon, other nature activities were added to it in the form of seminars and forest hikes.
In 2022, the Ministry of Education and Research approved the Interest School SelgeSiht curriculum “Nature and Green Technologies”. Based on that, we started to provide interest education in the field of environmental awareness, nature and green technologies.
Internationally, we use the EU-wide registered brand name CESERE ®, which is an abbreviation of Centre for Community and Environmental Sustainability and Security Research and Education.
