Slovenia’s Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy teamed up with the Croatian programme partner Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds and EU-supported project MISTERION to organise a series of three events under the joint title European Cooperation Day ‘’Youth for Cooperation – Experiencing the Mysteries of Water’’, involving 115 participants.

The official part of the event held in Croatia’s Kamanj featured keynote speakers and project partners who highlighted the results and the importance of cross-border projects, including Mayor of Municipality of Kamanje Damir Mateljan, Head of Managing Authority of Cooperation Programme Slovenia-Croatia at the Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy Tanja Rener, Director of European Territorial Cooperation Office at the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds Stella Arneri, Mayor of Municipality of Semič Polona Kambič, member of Semič Youth Centre Lidija Kočevar, and President of Youth Council of the Karlovac County Renato Bukovac.

This part of the event took the participants all the way to the spring of the Krupa River, where they embarked on the Karst educational trail which is known to be the only place in the programme area where the unique cave clam Congeria can be found. The themed trail led the participants across the reconstructed footbridge crossing the Krupa River, offering insights into the rich natural and cultural heritage of the area.
