The association Licej from Belgrade, Serbia supported by the EU TACSO 3 on-demand programme, is organizing the online Conference of Nature Conservationist for Balkan Region “Green wave 2021”, which will be held on 23 and 24 September 2021.
The Conference aims to create a regional network of activists, scientists, and organizations to strengthen the impact and protection of fundamental human rights, especially those focusing on conserving natural resources. There are numerous hotspots in the Balkan region defended by local activists, and these initiatives are vital for the entire region. Often remaining isolated, without broader support, and relying solely on their strengths, these initiatives lack the visibility and resources for more significant impact. Without the solidarity of the wider community of people whose goal is nature protection, the chances of solving problems that go far beyond the local research are diminished.In addition to getting acquainted with local initiatives in the field of nature protection, lectures and workshops will be presented by experts in the field of geo-heritage and environmental law. It is expected the presence of organizations and activists from the region, experts, representatives of institutions, in order to:Creating a Declaration on future cooperation in the region Adoption of the Code of Ethics for Nature Conservationists
