As part of the Nature Access to All project (NatAc) our partner – Estonian Environmental Board – has developed a new and innovative educational tool that helps to learn about nature for people with disabilities and especially – people with visual impairment.

Currently five fo these chest are being produced also in Latvia, using the Estonian example) and we expect the delivery already in the end of July!
