Local Priorities for Environmental Protection in Regions with Protected Areas
What are the most pressing environmental problems in the protected areas? How much is formal education teaching about ecology and environmental protection? Are young people involved in extracurricular activities in this area and what is being done by CSOs and institutions about environmental protection are some of the questions covered by the research “Local Priorities for Environmental Protection in Regions with Protected Areas (Demir Kapija, Prespa, Strumica Pelagonija, Tikves and Ohrid)” conducted by the Institute of Communication Studies in partnership with the Macedonian Ecological Society (MES).
The main goal of the research is to strengthen the communication capacities for advocacy of the civil society organizations and youth and to strengthen the participation of the public in environmental decision making.
