It will deep cooperate as well for the implementation of all other project activities (organization of one MB meeting, dissemination, realization of one pilot project: Zero Waste event etc.). Moreover, in the implementation of this project Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism wants to provide promotion of river Una as a national treasure that was recently declared as a national park, to raise awareness on environmental protection and natural beauty, include the municipalities and tourist boards, and other associations and individuals in order to achieve the expected results, and produce a cultural change that will be a reason to enjoy a particular area.
