Building bridges for cross-border cooperation in Prokletije

In Prokletije National Park in southeastern Montenegro, at the border with Albania and Kosovo, a project is fostering collaboration between young people in the Transboundary Dinaric Alps. A five-day summer school was held recently to strengthen environmental awareness on the protection and promotion of the cross-border area. The participants (18-24 years old) addressed a wide range of topics including lobbying and raising awareness on issues affecting communities, developing project proposals and building campaigns. They also had plenty of opportunities to appreciate the natural and cultural attractions of the region and to discuss the natural values of the area, tourist potential, and opportunities, as well as the challenges of environmental protection.
