This year, LT&C is combining its AGM with a hands-on conference and a series of workshops in Slovakia, where we have partnered up with the environmental NGO Aevis in their efforts to develop ecotourism in protected areas in Slovakia. Our half-day AGM will be followed by workshops for LT&C members and Aevis partners from Slovakia to discuss first hand 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-Infortourism. Please send us your expression of interest to present your initiative until May 31st 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org
Following the AGM and conference, 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.
