During 2 years we will develop joint methodology for educational programs in the field of natural and cultural heritage in Lake Peipsi region, organize outdoor programs and summer schools for children, field trips and trainings for educators.  We also work for awareness of the cultural and natural heritage of the region on wider level through Lake Peipsi/Chudskoe heritage days and PR campaign.
