Foundation Petrović Njegoš helped the realization of a research camp called “Planet in Your Hands”, which was organized from 13-17 August at Ivanova korita by the Foundation for the Promotion of Science – PRONA.
This year’s research camp was dedicated to the promotion of Montenegro as a possible European model of sustainable environmental development. Through lectures, workshops, quizzes and other creative activities elementary school-aged students from all parts of Montenegro had an opportunity to get familiar with topics such as: environmental protection and biodiversity, energy efficiency, green energy, the production of organic foods etc. Participants also took part in the reforestation of the National Park Lovcen, as well as in the development of solar collectors from recyclable materials.
On the third day of the camp Prince Nikola visited the participants and gave them copies of the book “Small is beautiful” by E.F. Schumacher – one of the important figures of the environmental movements in the seventies.
Beside the Petrovic Njegos Foundation, the realization of this project was made possible by the support of the Parliament of Montenegro as the main sponsor, the Ministry of Economy – Directorate for Energy Efficiency and the Ministry of Science.
