NatuRegio offers a vocational training programme for young professionals


NatuRegio offers a vocational training programme for young professionals (not older than 40 years) working with Floodplain/Wetland/Aquatic Ecosystem and Protected Areas Management in the Central and Lower Danube River Basin (Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine).

The trainees will pass a vocational training programme dealing with latest issues of nature conservation and regional development in river basins with additional focus on professional skills like project management and international communication. The programme is constituted as a five week (2 May – 4 June 2011) seminar in Germany at 5 different sites at the river systems of Elbe, Danube and Rhine and a “Cross Border Workshop” (11 - 15 July 2011) at the Danube. The trainees will develop projects for their home countries which will be implemented in 4-5 months subsequent to the “Cross border Workshop” by the trainees, supported by an international project team.

All necessary travel costs and the costs during the stay in Germany and the Cross-Border-Workshop as well as the project funding are covered by the programme.

The project aims at enhancing sustainable nature conservation and regional development strategies in floodplains and wetlands along the Danube, to encourage cross-border collaboration and to establish a network of experts in the countries involved.
