The overall goal of the project is the improvement of ecological state of the Dorman creek through empowerment and training of the local community. To achieve the overall goal, the aim is to strengthen the capacity of the local community and promote active involvement in the realization of this project. There will be a series of trainings held in the field of volunteering, capacity building, empowering of the local community to engage itself actively in the process of sustainable development.

Specific objectives include:

  1. The construction of the small dams on the riverbank of Dorman creek will be accomplished in order to stop riverbank erosion; #The construction will be done with the support of the local community who will volunteer during the works. The outcome of this objective will be the improvement of the ecological state of the creek, oxygenizing the water itself, which would positively influence the life quality of the local community;
  2. Promote ecotourism in the valley of Dorman creek. This will be done by dissemination of information on the benefits of ecotourism by presenting good models from other European countries.

The realization of the three objectives will lead to change of attitude within the community in the favor of the sustainable development.
