Systematic education of nature conservation workers
The One Nature project focuses, among other things, on the transfer of individual outputs of the project into the practice of owners and users of land located in protected areas of the Natura 2000 network. One way how to address them is through managers, administrators and other employees of nature conservation authorities who are being systematically educated during the project.
During the five years of the project, 400 nature conservation workers will be trained in a full-time attendance form and another 200 in the form of e-learning. Trainings and workshops are open for employees of the Nature Conservation Agency (NCA), regional authorities, national parks and military district forest offices that manage or, in some way, participate in the management of lands within the Natura 2000 network.
The “hunger” for expert education was evident among nature conservation workers as early as during the preparation of the project application. To clarify the targeting of the intended training, we conducted a survey of educational needs in the beginning of 2020. Thanks to its findings, the NCA employees prepared four educational modules tailored to the objectives of the One Nature project.
- Natura 2000 network
- Communication skills
- Management of Natura 2000 sites
- Evaluation of ecosystem services
