˝The School Network in Protected Areas-Guidebook for Protected Areas and Schools˝-regional educational program in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia.

Within the project "Protected Areas for Nature and People˝, WWF Adria and Park Dinarides recently developed a Guidebook: ˝The School Network in Protected Areas-Guidebook for Protected Areas and Schools˝. The Guidebook is created for Protected Areas managers who want to work together with local teachers to develop educational programs or improve existing ones, and for schools that are interested in conducting their school curricula in the amazing environments of Protected Areas. In the chapters Learning about nature through play and Educational Activities and Critical Thinking is explained how to develop educational activities and in Annex 1 - Learning about nature through play - Description of activities are provided detailed explanations of examples of activities.

School Networks aims to create long-term and efficient partnerships between local schools and a Protected Area that is bound by the common goal of preserving local natural and cultural heritage in a way that contributes to the wellbeing of the local community.

The Guidebook is available in English.

CEETO project to establish an innovative governance system for sustainable tourism in protected and NATURA 2000 areas

In June 2017 the implementation of the EU co-financed project Central Europe Eco-Tourism: tools for nature protection (CEETO) began.
The objective of the project is to establish an innovative governance system for sustainable tourism based on a participatory approach that aims to improve the capacity of protected area managers for the sustainable management and use of natural values. By implementing pilot activities in eight protected areas, which are also Natura 2000 sites, innovative management and monitoring tools will be tested with a special focus on the impact of tourism on biodiversity in these areas.
