In 2012 the Environmental Education Working Group of Milvus Group organized information meetings entitled “The best educational methods to promote the Natura 2000 network” in the frame of SOP Environment project “For nature and local communities – the bases for a Natura 2000 integrated management in Hârtibaciu – Târnava Mare area” co-financed by the European Union Regional Fund. The project is implemented by WWF Romania in partnership with ADEPT Foundation, Mihai Eminescu Trust, Regional Environmental Protection Agency Sibiu and EcoTur Sibiu. The six presentations were held in four towns from Transylvania: Agnita, Dumbrăveni, Rupea and Sighișoara, in Romanian and Hungarian also.
These meetings lasted two days. Members of the Working Group presented the flora and fauna of Hârtibaciu – Târnava Mare – Olt area, the concepts of Natura 2000 and agro-environmental payments. They presented different methods, games and ideas, which can be used by the teachers during their classes. The 232 teachers present on the meetings received a package with publications and posters edited by Milvus Group and its partners and ultimately they will receive an educational package edited by Milvus Group realised within this project.
