Participatory workshop in Beskydy Mountains
On May 15, 2019, our department organized a participatory workshop in Roznov pod Radhostem. It was called “How to prepare Beskydy for climate change?” and was a part of the Interreg project “Biodiversity and ecosystem services renewal in the Beskydy forests endangered by climate change”. Nearly thirty representatives of public administration, forest industry, nature protection and lokal businesses have taken part in the workshop. They discussed the nature benefits to society in Beskydy and considered how much in danger they are from the climate change. The risks caused by climate change were introduced to the participants by the CzechGlobe climatologist Petr Skalak who is also the coordinator of the Interreg project. The aim of the participatory workshop was to involve the broadest public into the discussion about future adaptation measures against climate change. As a result, coming out of the interesting discussions amongst the participants suggestions where made which adaptation measures should be implemented in the Beskydy Mountains area.
It will be worked upon the results of the workshop in further activities of the project Biodiversity and ecosystem services renewal in the Beskydy forests endangered by climate change. The project was supported by the Interreg V-A program Czech Republic – Slovak Republic.
