Education of pupils mediated by experts from universities should to incite interest of future generation in environment and build a positive attitude towards problem solving. The Strážske city is known as a place with the largest environmental impact from the past in Slovakia. It is located on the Laborec River, with the tributary of the River Uh near Uzhhorod, from the Ukrainian side. The comparison of the prevalence of water purity in rivers on both sides of the border is carried out by university experts with involved pupils. The results of the project study will be published through a presentation ecologal conditions of rivers and their ecosystem, by pupils and students with the participation of their parents and citizens of nereast region. Education expands knowledge about quality of the environment and its impact on organism life and human health.
