Austria Short Term ESC EVS

Austria Short Term ESC EVS The European Green Belt is a valuable ecological network along the former Iron curtain. The Green Belt forms the backbone of Pan-European ecological network and provides a significant contribution to European “Green Infrastructure”. European Green Belt is a space for encounters between people and cultures and opportunities for a joint sustainable approach to natural and cultural heritage. With this project in the Green Belt at the Austrian-Czech border, the Austrian League for Nature Conservation – Lower Austria and SCI Austria want to link international cooperation and nature conservation. You will take concrete action to maintain biodiversity in a part of the EGB zone along the border between Austria and Czechia and contribute to preservation of endangered species. We will work together for 5-6 hours a day. We will mow steep meadows and remove bushes from dry rocky grasslands that are threatened to be over grown by bushes and trees.

ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS

We will all together live in a big room at a campsite in the village of Poysdorf. Please bring your sleeping bag and sleeping mat, as we will sleep on the floor (no beds and no mattresses are provided!). If you bring a tent, it is also possible to sleep outside. Usually we will cook for ourselves (breakfast and dinner). Lunch will be packed; sometimes we will have lunch at a canteen or restaurant. Additional free-time activities like barbecue are planned depending on the weather. There’s a nice pond next to the accommodation where is possible to swim

TRAINING DURING THE ACTIVITY

Apart from contributing to protection of endangered species by physical work you will also learn about them as well as about other plants and animals in the area. We will reflect upon ecological problems and initiatives that one can take in order to support environmental protection and promote a sustainable green Europe. The beautiful region of Lower Austria offers a lot of possibilities for free-time activities and cultural enrichment. You can learn something about wine-production, we will visit the castle of Falkenstein, make a trip to Mikulov in the near Czech Republic
