Since the turn of the century the wolf is back in Germany. Surveys revealed that the majority of the German population is wolf friendly. Nonetheless, as the number of wolves increases, so does the number of the potential conflicts.

Wolves and humans in Germany, is it really a love story?

Kids from the third grade of the school in Murter joined the art contest OZONE GUARDIANS, which was announced by the Croatian Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy.

Although at the beginning of the lesson, kids had no idea what the ozone might be, after cartoon, stories and games they all could hardly wait to be a little OZONE GUARDIAN. The Argonauta's team explained to them what the ozone molecules are, what is ozone layer, and where it is located, who destroys it, and why it serves.

Umbrella is launching informational online and offline campaign "Don’t burn the leaf!"

Umbrella is a youth organisation in Georgia, one of our priorities is to promote environmental education and awareness regarding various ecological and environmental issues among the youth.

In the scope of our goal we started a project aiming to raise awareness about the negative impact of burning the leaves in Georgia.

For several years in EDEN centre we had the tradition to join common initiatives or to start environmental actions that take place during the European Mobility Week (16-22 September 2017).
This action was held under the theme "A clean, shared and intelligent mobility" followed by the slogan "Sharing gets you further".

We have been attracted from this theme, which goes in the same direction and with the principles that EDEN pursues in its activities. Therefore, we decided to promote a peaceful march. In collaboration with other environmental organisations, we decided to focus on citizens of Tirana who want to walk and encourage others to walk. Participants had the possibility to understand the importance of walking for their health and how this affects the protection of the environment.

We are proud to announce that our new educative center “ZABEC” officially start its work on 1st of November this year!

“ZABEC” is the first and only educative center for children in Macedonia that aims to promote the subjects of ecology and environmental protection. Through these themes the kids are expected to learn about many other real and modern topics and situations in which the kids will be main actors. This should result in positive change at any given matter from the normal everyday life.

The NGO "Public Awareness and Monitoring Center", highlighting the implementation of the pillars of the Aarhus Convention in Armenia, has launched a project entitled "Raising Awareness on Implementation of Aarhus Convention in Armenia". The implementation of the project became possible thanks to the NGO "A. D. Sakharov Armenian Human Rights Centre".

Within the framework of the project, information on the 6th meeting of the Parties to the Aarhus Convention held in Budva, Montenegro in September, on the decisions adopted at the third meeting of the Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers (PRTR) and on the processes aimed to apply the Convention in Armenia are periodically published in Aarhus website (www.aarhus.am).

Wildlife photographer Craig Jones wishes Finland would avoid the mistakes made in the UK.

As a visitor to rural Finland’s most remote areas to photograph the rare and shy wolves, Craig Jones wishes that Finland could learn something from the UK, as there are now wishes of trying to re-enter some of the lost species to the wildlife, such as lynx and wolves. Craig is nevertheless not convinced it will happen very soon at least. He thinks that we should act now to preserve the strugling wolf populations and avoid the mistakes made in the UK, where they killed all their wolves and larger predators that once roamed free. Later, the work to reintroduce such species, once they’ve vanished from the landscape, would be a lot harder. “It’s better to conserve what you have alive now”, he feels. The wolf populations in Finland are small and shattered with only approximately 150-180 individuals according to the latest estimates by The Finnish Nature resource Centre (Luonnonvarakeskus.).

From the 1st to 9th of September, Murter was the center of the main activity of the "SOS - Save Our Seas" project. The main aim of this international sea-environment training course was to improve skills and competences of 28 participants from Europe who will later act as youth trainers and spread awareness and knowledge about the importance of marine ecosystems to young people in their communities.

Association Argonauta organised an international training course Save Our Seas (SOS), which was held in Murter from 1st to 9th of September 2017. The international training course brought together 28 marine enthusiasts from Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Latvia and Croatia, who have exchanged experiences and views connected to the topic of marine environment, and it mixed formal (actual facts, scientific methods, research) with non-formal education (e.g. games, presentations, workshops).
