V Platform Meeting of polish LIFE projects.
On November 15-16, 2018, the V Platform Meeting of LIFE projects took place in Busko-Zdrój. The two-day conference in the „open space” formule was an opportunity to exchange experiences and discuss the difficulties related to the implementation of individual activities. The meeting was attended by over 30 people – employees of various institutions implementing polish LIFE projects. Issues related to the ongoing implementation of projects and their reporting in formal and financial terms were discussed. A separate problem that was considered was the durability of projects and the operation of „After LIFE” – including the ways of such an draft agreement with the beneficiaries and persons implementing projects to continue the protection activities that are no longer financed by the European Commission. For our part, we were able to boast of the introduction of the brand „Jagnięcina z Ponidzia” to the market, which will be conducive to the profitability of sheep breeding after the end of the project. The ride on the „Ciuchcia Ponidzie” (local narrow-gauge railway) from Pińczów to Umianowice was not only an opportunity to show off one of our tourist attractions, but we could also familiarize participants with the area where we will be implementing our next LIFE project.
