Building a better community that works for every neighborhood with a focus on equity, opportunity, efficiency, and inclusion.


Udruženje za zaštitu okoliša i unapređenje turizma – STEP (Society for Tourism and Environmental Protection) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that focuses on management, education, promotion and improvement in the environmental and tourism sectors. STEP was founded in 2017 by a group of students from the Faculty of Science in Sarajevo, with the basic goal of using the acquired knowledge for the purpose of development and improvement in the fields of environmental protection and tourism. Our primary goal is to contribute to the development of raising public awareness of the problem of environmental protection and all its consequences, which today are a global problem in the world, since without the intensive participation of local communities and individuals, there is no environmentally friendly development that depends on society. Also, through many years of work and experience in the field of environment and tourism, we focus on providing support and cooperation to the public sector, governmental and non-governmental organizations, private sector, academia and other educational institutions, all with the aim of cooperation and promotion and improvement. In addition to environmental protection, STEP is developing towards becoming one of the leaders in the field of tourism planning and sustainable tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Where We’ve Steped

Step is based in BiH, Sarajevo. We collaborate with community partners such as schools, communities , social service organizations, and small and/or community-focused businesses to implement urban greening projects across the Portland metro region. We focus our work in areas that are underserved, where reduced pavement and increased access to greenspace will have a major positive impact on the community. Contact us if you’ve got an idea for a project.
