In addition, cross-border activities of the national park school cooperations and Junior Ranger Camps were promoted through excursions to Slovakian natural sites and student exchanges. A study on natural resources outside the protected areas provided an impulse for nature conservation initiatives in the region. Workshops and nature walks in communities aimed to involve and sensibilise the local population.
Other project partners in Austria were the region Marchfeld and the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National Park. Project partners in Slovakia were the Bratislava Self-Governing District (BSK), the State Nature Conservation Agency (SNC) and DAPHNE (NGO for environmental education).
A follow-up project is in preparation.
