On Friday, September 16th, “Capacity building for our environment”, a networking event organized by LIFE Slovenia team, took place at Forestry Institute of Slovenia. LIFE program Slovenia and successful LIFE projects were presented to general public and the media. Minister of the Environment and Spatial Planning, Irena Majcen, and LIFE Capacity building project coordinator, mag. Julijana Lebez Lozej, held a press conference.
As one of the successful LIFE stories, LIFE DINALP BEAR project team presented their work, recent educational materials and human-bear conflict mitigation measures at a stand. We enjoyed sharing our experience and networking with other project teams and look forward to future events organized by the LIFE Slovenia team.
