Technical support for the preparation of two INTERREG applications in the three countries corner (Slovenia, Italy, Austria)
Project objective: Elaboration of an Interreg application within the INTERREG program 2021-2027 Slovenia-Austria and Italia-Austria. The overall goal of the INTERREG programme is to reduce territorial disparities in the cross-border region, drive (sustainable) change, and to use new development trends as opportunities by developing and/or increasing cooperation across national borders in specific areas. Starting from the Dobratsch Nature Park, the Triglav National Park and the Prealpi Giulie Nature Park, a project for each of the associated program tracks was elaborated and developed. In different workshops with the leading actors from nature conservation and tourism of the countries, a concept with visions for a sustainable development of the natural and cultural heritage of the border regions was developed. The close cooperation between nature conservation and tourism represents an important milestone for a long-term and sustainable development of the mentioned areas.
