Eco-friendly Vakulenko Family from Tsarskoe Selo
"Stay true to your ideals both at work and at home"
There is still interest in Anton’s performance of SDGs and national anthems in 15 languages at popular Russian TV-show (even half-a-year later).
This firms our believe that we managed to speak up the topic that concerns many people but mostly kept silent by mass-media. Our experience revealed that SDGs agenda touches people, even if they have never heard about global UN concept. This finding inspires us to keep on acting for SDGs!
Our local magazine “Gorodskoy Kaleidoscope” published the new article about our family.
The conversation was very sincere and versatile. Together we’ve called to mind how Anton started learning languages and develop vocal skills. Altogether we’ve looked back from the scary сerebral palsy diagnosis to the present achievements of our young polyglot and ecologist.
We tried to show that every one of us can make a positive impact. You do not need any special conditions or perfect moment. What you need is realising what you stand on and stick to your beliefs whatever you are doing business, social or family activities.
Our family would like to lead by example showing that it is important not only promoting SDGs but also leaving everyday with regard to sustainable principles and values.

From Family Blog
We are extremely concerned about the path of development that mankind is chooseing.
The issue of the survival of the human species on Earth becomes the most important in our century [The Club of Rome].
We hear the term sustainable development more oftenand and start seeing the prefix eco-in many familiar words.
For our family, sustainable development is not an ephemeral concept. It is just an ordinary daily life we are all living.
Ecology is first and foremost the science of home. It teaches us how to interact with each other and with our environment to survive on the planet.
We want to share our way of living to show that sustainable development is something everyone is capable of. Only with everyone's contribution we will be able to reach it.
We want to unite our separate efforts and create a club of like-minded people EcoSanaClub. Together we can solve the key problems of the century. Save human species on our planet for the next genarations.
From our life and professional experience, we have identified four fundamental areas of life for development that will help in sound personal development: Education, Health, Survival Skills and Culture.
We sincerely hope that our experience will help you to acquire the skills and habits necessary to preserve our home safe for our children.
