Enestående samarbeidsprosjekt om vern av natur- og kulturarv i Slovenia

Innsjøen i Cerknica er en av de mest spesielle stedene i Indre-Carniola, i Slovenia. Det kalles for "vannet som forsvinner". Grunnet geologiske forhold i området, «forsvinner» vannet i underjordiske grotter i perioder uten regn, på høsten, og kan til og med flomme over i regnfylte perioder når våren kommer. Tidligere generasjoner har lært å tilpasse seg denne sykliske livsrytmen, men nå er den unike kunnskapen forbundet med dette i ferd med å forsvinne for godt. Museumssenteret i Hordaland bidrar, i samarbeid med Pajn (Institutt for bærekraftig liv), til å verne denne spesielle natur- og kulturarven.

Innovative and interactive theatre to improve the situation for minorities in Slovenia

It has been around twenty years since the break-up of Yugoslavia, yet the national communities of former Yugoslavia do not have an official minority group status which would provide them with specific collective rights. Instead they have to deal with factors that hinder their proactive participation in public life. To improve the situation for these groups, a Slovenian organisation is using innovative theater methods to mobilise the society. The project is funded by the EEA Grants and the NGO Programme in Slovenia.
