Within the European project SiiT, Vegal organizes the free workshop "The digital guides to public green areas of  Eastern Veneto", which will be held on Monday, September 8, 2014, from 2 pm to 6 pm, at the Environmental Education Centre La Fornace in Eraclea.
The workshop is organized as part of SiiT, a three-year project aimed at enhancing the knowledge of biodiversity in the Northern Adriatic area, providing some innovative online tools for the identification of plants, animals and fungi. SiiT is part of the Cross-Border Cooperation Program Italy-Slovenia 2007-2013 and sees the involvement of several partners including Vegal.

The GAL of Eastern Veneto aims to spread knowledge and encourage the use of digital guides for the recognition of natural species. These instruments can be applied in the territory where Vegal operates and are made available to schools, enthusiasts, nature organizations, parks and all citizens.
The workshop will be structured in two parts: the first one featuring the presentation of the project's tools and the second one involving the active participation of the audience with the opportunity to field test the digital guides.
