Also present in the 8th Andalusian Meeting of Experiences of Environmental Education and Urban Sustainability

LifeConhabit Andalusia has participated in the eighth edition of the Andalusian Meeting of Experiences of Environmental Education and Urban Sustainability held yesterday at the Casa de la Cultura in Conil de la Frontera (Cadiz), organised by the Environment and Town and Country Planning Department of the Regional Government of Andalusia and the Andalusian Federation of Towns and Provinces (FAMP).

And it has done it through the presentation of a poster in which they have synthesised and highlighted the relevant role of Local Government in the protection of priority habitats, as well as the dissemination of their enormous richness.

The involvement of the local Council in this way is key to the project. For this reason, it is about to re-hold the round of meetings that it held during the first half of the year with the councils with Natura 2000 Network spaces favoured for one of their operations. The aim is to add them as allies in the defence of the priority habitats of the 15 natural spaces that it contains.

This involvement, which has already started to germinate, intends to crystallise in collaborations with the cities to capitalise on the benefits derived from their natural spaces. And that can turn into, as the work presented today points out, opportunities for the economy and employment in the regions with ecotourism initiatives, green employment, natural heritage and cultural identity or promotion of local products of the Natura 2000 Network.
