Estonia 15th -22nd May 2017

Heritage Interpretation at a Community Level.
After a long journey and safe arrival to Tallinn airport we were greeted by the ray of warm sunshine, Maarika. We had an informative orientation trip toward the hotel with explanations, information and the promise of a tasty traditional meal. Hotel Dzingel stabled us for the night.

Study Programme in Slovenia 05th – 11th July 2017

The NET programme (Sustainable development in Slovenia) is an opportunity to recognize, participate in and discuss some practical work and get to know a large part of Slovenia. We will meet different people – from local and national projects, project managers and staff. The Karst region is a limestone plateau stretching from Nova Gorica southeast to the Croatian border, west to the Gulf of Trieste and east to the Vipava Valley. Cerknica Lake can disappear and then resurface in the Karst’s porous limestone through sinkholes and funnels, often resulting in underground caverns like the caves at Škocjan. Along with caves, the Karst is rich in olives, Teran wine, pršut, old stone churches and red-tiled roofs.

Hay is at the base of almost all traditional meat & dairy farm products – even to the farmyard chickens eating grasshoppers brought into the yard with the new hay crop. Hay – especially cut with a scythe, has shaped Romania’s rural cultural landscape and resulted in enormous biodiversity of flowering plants, insects & birds. Other important & ecosystem shaping farming activities include grazing and cutting (shredding/pollarding) trees for leaf hay and for fencing without wire.
