The cross-border Neusiedler See – Seewinkel/Fertő-Hanság National Park has experienced 25 years of cooperation. A number of projects in the line of science, tourism and education has been successfully realized. Nevertheless, the majority of inhabitants is thinking of a National Park divided by political borders. Establishing the cross-border NatureEducationNetwork will support the idea of one park with no borders and strengthen the acceptance for all project activities. Maintaining and protecting those historically and ecologically important habitats also keeps and protects the valuable living environment for local communities. Project activities and workshops on different levels (for pupils, teachers/adults, residents and strategic partners) will raise awareness and thereby help to protect the unique habitats for the upcoming generations.
The Information Centre in Illmitz serves as the coordinating basis for all educational activities within the network. The newly designed exhibition area and information displayed in three languages simplifies the common use and increases attractiveness to all visitors regardless of their language. In addition to the improved and updated Information Centre, the Csárdakapu Ranger and Education Centre in Balf mainly serves as the joint cross-border base for employees of the Neusiedler See – Seewinkel/Fertö Hanság National Park administration. Furthermore, it is planned to do use the location for cross-border workshops and activities as well. Both administration offices in Austria and Hungary will follow up on the legal framework for long-runjoint ranger activities.
The successful implementation of the program sets the cooperation of the administration entities (in Austria and Hungary) on a higher and improved level.
