Abstract

Slovak nature, landscape and environment, as well as organizations and initiatives for their protection have undergone complex developments over the past 30 years. Perception of the issue by general public was similarly complex. In an attempt to be precise, this development should be characterized ambiguously. Progress in reducing air, water and other environmental pollution has been accompanied by unprecedented disrespect for its other components, in particular for vegetation, fertile arable land, which is accompanied by an overall long-term underfunding of environmental care and lagging behind in building environmental infrastructure (especially sewers and wastewater treatment plants) as well as in finding solutions to the issue of old environmental burdens.

This article focuses on a brief description of the state and development of different components of the environment, successes and failures in their protection, as well as the role of specific actors in this process. The author also include the results of some of the research which focused at reflection of these issues by the public.
