particularly environmental issues (duration 1 day) with presentation of
practical tools, success stories, preparing action plans for future
activities in the region; panel discussions and invited speakers,

environmental decision-making in several rooms to show the advocacy
campaigns, and successful tools, stories etc.

?          ?Deconstructing the concrete? artists, film-makers, writers,
architects and public activists are coming together to learn how we can
change the environment: European experience,  contemporary approaches to
public issues.

local communities projects on Ecotourism, presentation of tour- agencies?
products, presentation of international projects on eco tourism
implemented in the region, publication of booklets with based on this

 We hope this will encourage public participation in environmental
decision-making and assist in the solution of the most acute
environmental problems in the region and this would be possible to
achieve first of all by establishing required contacts, maintaining
information databases, dissemination of information to all concerned and
other communication efforts.
