NEWS number 2

We are being very active pre Christmas time!

We are organising Christmas Markets in Postojna (14th December), Ilirska Bistrica (21st December) and Pivka (23rd December).

Last Tuesday we organized a trip and were shown »good practice« in Central Slovenia at the LAG Srce (Heart) in Litija and area.We had excellent hosts and got some really good contacts, tips and ideas. The visit was a huge success and we would like to thank our hosts very much for excellent presentations and organization.

We had a meeting of the Senior Management (Upravni odbor) of the Association for Development of the Slovenian Coutryside on 6th December 2013. The meeting was held in the new Ecomuseum of Pivka's seasonal lakes in Slovenska Vas (near Pivka).

On 10th December the eighteenth regular session of »UO LAS« ( Senior Management LAG) was held, during which actual and realised LAG projects and draft plans for next year were discussed. The preparation of a new local developing strategy for the period 2014 – 2020 was an important part of the discussions.

The Committee made a decision to officially join the regional destination organization »Postojnska Jama (cave) – Zeleni Kras«, (Green Karst). We co-operate already, but in future this organization will become a key and very important partner in developing our countryside tourist projects.

We welcomed another 8 new members into our association, making a current total of 125 members.

The technical (profesional) leader of the LAG participated on workshops for preparing strategies for the Slovenian LAG, organised by LAG »Obsotelje in Kozjansko« in Šmarje pri Jelšah on 12th December 2013.

We presented our projects and activities to guests from Bulgaria and hosted members of the LAG Sredetz during their visit to our regional LAG and to LAG Istra.
