On the World Day of Environment 5th of June
Nature Conservation Union Smrekovec
presented the project
STAND UP FOR SMREKOVEC
The project Stand up for Smrekovec is a programme of environemental education run in cooperation with local schools from Šoštanj, Ljubno ob Savinji and Črna na Koroškem. During the project pupils were learning about nature, thinking about the future, writing essays, we made a short documentary film and prepared a mobile exhibition which will host on local schools in autumn.
On the World Day of Environment we prepared a public event which was held in the House of Culture in Šoštanj. In the hall of the house the mobile exhibition was on disposal. The event was a first showing of the documentary film Stand up for Smrekovec which shows the nature and perspectives of Smrekovec highlands through the eyes and thinking of pupils. New postcards of Smrekovec were issued on the same day. Within the cultural programme pupils presented importance of nature conservation on their own creative way. Additional performance was contributed by the Youth Chor from Šoštanj local school and the music school of Fran Korun Koželjski from Velenje.
Documentary film and postcards were made by the financial help from Matra Knip of the Royal Netherlands Embassy and the Slovenian Ministry for School and Sport.
