On Saturday, August 29, 2020, starting at 10:00 am in Karlovac, EDIC Karlovac participated in a promotional event within the project "Encounter with the river" The aim of the project is to contribute to sustainable use of natural resources and preservation of biological balance of NATURA 2000 rivers of Karlovac County, through increasing the tourist attractiveness of these areas and education and raising awareness of the importance of their preservation. Given that one of the priorities of the European Commission is the European Green Plan, EDIC Karlovac will join the event by distributing promotional materials and brochures in a green environment and with a project that emphasizes the priorities of the EC to point out the importance of preserving biological balance.
The promo event was educational and fun, and the goal was to bring the project location, newly built visitor infrastructure closer to the interested public and to raise public awareness of the importance of nature conservation and biodiversity and proper behavior in NATURA 2000 protected nature areas.
At the event, attendees were able to learn how to row safely and behave on the increasingly popular SUP boards, kayaks, mini rafts and rafts in the waterfall itself, with high insurance of divers and HGSS and top skippers and kayakers.
