Climate change and environment education centre (Living Lab) in Dropie
Global change - local vulnerability
Anyone who knows the story of the bustard will understand that the story is about the vulnerability of a species that has failed to adapt to changes in its environment. Bustard has therefore become a symbol of local species vulnerability in Slovakia. It is a flagship species, which is supposed to remind us – humans of the importance of adaptation as well as the importance of protecting habitats and biotopes of important and protected species, and also to change the current unsustainable development of civilization into a development of a type that is closer to the course and functioning of natural processes.
Based on this concept, the Climate Education Programs were born, which focus on adaptation and mitigation actions. On this page we add records of all the programs and activities implemented by this program.
Through the financial resources from the Norwegian Financial Mechanism the area is expected to be gradually developed into a living model laboratory for climate change.
The project activities are defined in Work package 1, Work package 2 and Work package 3 as external measures, internal measures and soft measures, of which a full overview can be found in on menu About project or on the SAŽP website.
Our Climate change and environment education centre (Living Lab) in Dropie project received a financial contributions 1 200 000€ from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through EEA Grants. The aim of the project is to create a demonstration ecocentre at Dropie with implemented adaptation and mitigation measures, which will serve the general public.
