To mark the European Year of Cultural Heritage, CEEweb for Biodiversity launches “Go Wild! Stay Cultured.” - International Nature and Culture Photo Contest for 2018.
Nature and culture can both be on their own a fertile source of inspiration. What happens when they are interlinked? Today, you are invited to join them on this journey of discovery by taking part in their photo contest.
“Go Wild! Stay Cultured.” explores the inter linkage of culture and Natura 2000 areas. Natura 2000 is the largest European sites network for the protection of habitats and species: a milestone in preserving biodiversity and a remarkable symbol of our cultural and natural heritage. You can have a look at this map to find out which Natura 2000 sites are closer to you.
Share your photos showing your interpretation of culture and nature connections e.g. how culture is inspired by nature or what natural places have a value for culture. The pictures should be coming from Natura 2000 sites, the largest network of protected areas in Europe. Raise your voice on the importance of preserving natural habitats, especially for protected animal and plant species.
