This congress gathers experts, enthusiasts, and representatives of organizations in the field of environment protection, education, culture, art, lawyers and representatives of institutions for the preservation of nature.

The congress should answer the following questions: Which conventions and current laws preserve the rich heritage of the delta of the Neretva river from economic and touristic exploitation? In which way can the local population be included in the decision making process with regard to natural heritage management for the purpose of protecting the natural resources which it uses and benefits from? In what way can citizens be educated by adapting to their age groups? What are the possibilities, responsibilities, and obligations of individuals, associations, organizations and/or institutions regarding the protection of their own habitat? How much can art, art organizations, institutions, in general, perform regarding the process of protection and renewal of natural resources, especially in cooperation with the local authorities and local population who own these resources? In what way can citizens be educated with regard to smart management of natural resources in private ownership and the influence of such management on the global health environment? What are the examples of good practice?

This interdisciplinary congress should be the place for sharing experiences but also by applying the acquired knowledge, we should become aware of the importance of the large natural resources and the diversity of the Neretva Delta. We should also enforce our personal understanding of the values of pristine nature and its, albeit limited regeneration and of course become aware of the importance of lifelong learning about the afore-mentioned and linked topics.
