A holistic approach for the Carpathian Protected Areas

A holistic approach for the Carpathian Protected Areas

During a Europarc Consulting training course about the elaboration of PA management plans held in Poiana Brasov, Romania, on 22-24 May, the necessity of a holistic approach for natural, cultural and spiritual heritages was presented by Sebastian Catanoiu to representatives of the Carpathian Protected Areas from Poland, Slovakia, and Romania. All of them, as well as the trainers, agreed that the Carpathian Ecoregion, due to the significance of the existing traditions, faiths, and living in sacred places, is a very suitable Ecoregion for implementing this holistic approach.
