Description

The project is one of the first examples of responses of Pomurska region to the relatively newly introduced protection category of Natura 2000 in Slovenia. The project idea is to define a model of the sustainable use of the cultural landscape which is directly connected to the idea of Natura 2000. The proposed model will be based on the economic and social characteristics of the project area and will suggest the ways and solutions for the biodiversity preservation. As the project results the new agricultural products will be defined and the communication among the environmentalists and farmers shall be improved.
