Pozývame Vás na ďalší ročník zaježovskej Letnej slávnosti na sekierskych lúkach. Bude v podobnom duchu ako predchádzajúce roky, takže tí, ktorí tu už boli, vedia, na čo sa môžu tešiť. Podrobný program nájdete v prílohe
The former farm building in the part of Zaježová called Polomy has been serving as a base for educational activities since 1991. It is being rented by the local civic associations, as well as NGOs and individuals to host various events – seminars, environmental education for schools, dance workshops and retreats.
New inhabitants of Zajezova valley and places in its close neighbourhood have brought new life into dying out small village. People join efforts to improve quality of life here, to prevent problems, which caused depolpulation in second half of 20th century. They organize common work on public projects (bus stop reparation, waste collection, tree planting, playground making etc.), informal parties and bigger seasonal celebrations, common holidays and weekend trips of families, local activism (nature protection, waste issues,...) and so on.

A group of Zaježová inhabitants who actively climb recently started a climbing club. They train with local kids, some of them even participate in climbing competitions. They plan to build a climbing wall in a community centre so they limit travelling to city (60km away). It should be space for training and it should be used also by local school for physical education (the school is very small so it does not have a gym). The people have already invested money and time into this project, but they still miss resources. So they started to collect money to support this idea.
Asia, South America, Cuba, films from the „one world festival“, screenings and discussions with the makers of the films „Vlčie hory“ (The Wolf Mountains) and „Slameny dom“ (The Strawbale House), clown performances, archery, horse riding, exhibitions of paintings and photographs and so on.
