WORKSHOP IN SLOVAKIA POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 17/18, 2020.

AGM WILL TAKE PLACE IN ARENDAL, NORWAY, MAY 20, 2020

Due to the Corona crisis the workshop in Slovakia, originally planned for May 20-24 in combination with the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Is presently postponed to September 17/18. The AGM is now planned to be held in Arendal, and if necessary by Skype.

At the hands-on workshop in Slovakia, where we have partnered up with the environmental NGO Aevis in their efforts to develop ecotourism in protected areas in Slovakia we will discuss some of the burning issues for ecotourism development in Slovakia, learn from LT&C member experience and jointly find practical solutions. The conference will give an overview of the ongoing project “Fewer barriers for more benefits in utilising nature” and introduce the work Aevis is conducting, as well as presenting a practical handbook LT&C has developed.

There will also be an opportunity for LT&C members to present relevant tools and success stories for developing eco-tourism. Please send us your expression of interest to present your initiative until May 31, 2020, to info@ltandc.org

Our project partner Aevis has prepared field visits to some interesting ecotourism spots in Slovakia, such as Veľká Fatra National Park, Slovenský raj National Park or Muránska Planina National Park. Guided tours to some of Europe’s last wilderness areas involve wildlife watching, stargazing and visits to canyons and caves. We will publish a detailed field visit agenda soon.
