The ongoing commitment to environmental preservation and combating climate change reached its peak at the final event of the TD&AD project, held on December 12, 2023, at the Milutin Milanković Cultural and Scientific Center in Dalj, as part of an awareness-raising campaign. Each partner proudly presented the project’s results in their local environments.
The focus of discussions and activities during the event was on the necessity of environmental protection and addressing the challenges posed by climate change. Participants actively explored the exhibition at the birth house of Milutin Milanković, reviewed the project’s website, utilized the learning platform, and studied materials and animated films developed as part of the initiative. The highlight of the event was an interactive quiz, providing attendees with the opportunity to test and apply newly acquired knowledge.
In addition to representatives from schools, the civil sector, and agricultural farms, household representatives also participated. To facilitate a change in their daily habits, we donated coffee thermoses, cotton bags, insulated bottles, canvas backpacks, and similar items.
This event not only presented concrete steps and the project’s results but also emphasized the necessity of synergy within local communities to achieve a significant impact on environmental preservation. Synergy, or the collaborative work of various stakeholders such as educational institutions, civil society organizations, and families, becomes crucial for a deeper understanding of the challenges our planet faces.
Local communities have the potential to become centers of change because it is at this level that daily decisions impact the environment. Creating synergy among them enables the exchange of ideas, resources, and best practices, fostering collective responsibility towards nature conservation.
Events like these not only showcase specific initiatives but also serve as a platform to raise awareness of the importance of collaboration within the local community. Through activities like these, mutual learning and support are encouraged, thereby creating a sustainable chain of action that expands and influences a larger population. Simultaneously, synergy reduces barriers and challenges while promoting innovative approaches to solving environmental preservation issues, making the local community a key player in promoting sustainable development.
