Ljubljana – The DRAVA LIFE project was presented at the LIFE Networking Conference “The Environment needs LIFE for the next 25 years”, organized by the Slovenian Ministry of Environment and Space in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
EU supports the preservation of unique and precious natural heritage for 25 years. In order to celebrate this jubilee, the European Commission, together with the European Parliament, the Council and the Committee of the Regions, declared May 21 as a European Day of Natura 2000.
The purpose of the conference, attended by more than 100 participants from all over Europe, was marking the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Habitats Directive and 25 years of the LIFE program. The conference provided an opportunity for international networking, exchange of experience and practical advice for all those interested in the LIFE program. A digital platform for partnerships in the implementation of projects co-financed by the LIFE program was also presented. Most of the time was devoted to presenting good practices and LIFE projects and addressing environmental issues at national and EU level.
