SaveGREEN - INVITATION: TRANSNATIONAL EXPERIENCE EXCHANGE WORKSHOPS

Transnational wokshop
Mar 21, 2022

On behalf of the SaveGREEN consortium, we are pleased to invite you to participate in our series of Transnational Experience Exchange Workshops, which will be held between May and September 2022.

In the upcoming Transnational Experience Exchange Workshops, our project partners and relevant stakeholders will share the experiences made in their pilot areas over the past 21 months of project implementation. Of the five meetings, four will be held in selected sites within the project’s area of activity: Austria/Czech Republic, Hungary/Slovakia, Romania, and Bulgaria, and will most notably include discussions on the Cross-Sectoral Operational Plans, created as a direct response to the threats to ecological connectivity identified in the pilot areas. Each of the workshops will also include field trips to specific sites of interest in the respective pilot area(s). 

The fifth meeting was planned to be held in Uzhgorod, Ukraine, but will not take place due to the unfolding humanitarian crisis in the country. The SaveGREEN consortium is gravely concerned about the dire situation. We stand together with our Ukrainian team members, all those affected and everyone around the world that is hoping for a peaceful resolution.
