ECO KARST project among finalists for NATURA 2000 award

ECO KARST project (Ecosystem services of karst protected areas – driving force of local sustainable development) has been chosen as a finalist for European Commission's Natura 2000 Award in 2020. The project is being considered in the category Reconciling Interests/Perceptions.

European Natura 2000 Awards aim to honour leading nature conservation achievements and reward excellence in the management and promotion of the Natura 2000 network, as well as to raise awareness about Natura 2000 and its benefits to European citizens. This year the ECO KARST project is among the finalists for this Award. Slovenia Forest Service coordinated the project in collaboration with 11 project partners from nine Central and South-Eastern European countries. The project  developed a new approach for the use of ecosystem services for better long-term, sustainable cooperation between protected area managers, nature conservationists, and local communities.

The project is thus considered for the Award of the high jury in the category of Reconciling Interests/Perceptions, as well as for the EU Citizens' Award, which will be given to the finalist with the most public votes. The link below will allow you to cast your vote and support the project:

The Slovenia Forest Service is a public institution, established by the Republic of Slovenia, which performs public forestry service in all Slovenian forests, irrespective of ownership.

Our tasks and activities are connected with all fields of forest management on the national, regional and local levels: forest management planning, monitoring of forests, silviculture and forest protection, use of forest technologies, construction and maintenance of forest roads, monitoring of wild animal populations, hunting, forestry extension service for forest owners, research work, rural development activities, raising awareness and the education of forest owners, the general public and youth. The Slovenia Forest Service does not perform any felling, extraction, transport and selling of wood, nor forest trade. 

With approximately 730 employees, mostly forestry engineers, the Slovenia Forest Service is the largest forestry institution in Slovenia and a forestry institution of European importance. We operate by the principles of the Slovenian forestry school, planning and monitoring the implementation of sustainable, close-to-nature and multifunctional forest management. Our motto is: “Preservation and close-to-nature development of Slovenian forests and of all their functions for their sustainable and good management and use as well as nature conservation in forest space for the good of present and future generations.”

At the state level, the Slovenia Forest Service is organised with its central unit in Ljubljana, at the regional level in 14 regional units, and at local level into 69 local units and 391 forest districts. SFS also comprises 10 hunting reserves.

The Slovenia Forest Service is currently participating in 15 ongoing international projects. Since our founding, we were a partner or the lead partner in 33 finished projects, among these LIFE+, Interreg and projects by other funding mechanisms.
