The organisation's experience in the conservation of small rivers

In 2001, in Yaremcha city, an International Environmental Conference was held with representatives from Ukraine, Germany and Romania participating. The Conference made it possible for the three bodies to collaborate with the same partners in oblast and local authorities, the Carpathian National Park and public organisations. The practical outcome of the conference was the creation of the Carpathian Environmental Centre in Vorokhta, aimed at improving the level of public involvement through educational and eco-cultural activities as well as establishing in the region alternative ways of generating power, with examples of model facilities (in collaboration with Swiss environmentalists).

In three successive years, with local authority support, environmental camps for Kalush schoolchildren were held, an environmental expedition to the Manyava Botanical Reserve was mounted, and collaboration was established with environmental organisations in Ukraine and abroad (Poland and Slovakia).

In 2001-2002, the organisation carried out the "Rehabilitation of the Small Rivers of Kalush" programme, aimed at undertaking awareness-raising and providing legal training to the private sector by volunteers. A model clean-up was carried out with the participation of guests from Australia and Poland (representatives of a movement entitled "Clean up the World!" "Eko-Gal-Ostwind" is the co-ordinator of the movement in Ivano-Frankivska Oblast).

In 2003, within the framework of the "Save your River" Small Grants Programme carried out by the Wetlands International Black Sea Programme, the project, "The Publication of a Brochure, “Practical Experience in the Rehabilitation of Small Rivers” and Production of a Poster-Calendar Relating to the Results of the Successful Programme, “The Rehabilitation of Small Rivers”", was supported.
