As we are coming to the end of the 3 year ELENA project it was time to organise the ELENA national workshop in the Budapest Zoo in Hungary.
During the event the participants not only had the opportunity to learn about the results and experiences of the ELENA project but it was also a meeting where we could appoint targets which are to be reached in the form of cooperation thus helping the further integration of ELENA in practice. These opportunities can connect the results of the ELENA project with public education, zoopedagogy and entrepreneurship education.
The event was opened by Prof. Dr. Miklós Persányi , director of the Budapest Zoo and Beáta Kormos senior counsellor of the Ministry of National Economy. The hosts included Márta Szabon educational and development assistant of the Budapest Zoo, Ildikó Kovács , project manager of Junior Achievement Hungary, Katalin Czippán, vice chair of IUCN CEC and project coordinator of Bavarian Academy of Nature Conservation and Dr Éva Virág Suhajda the evaluator of teh ELENA project.
