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.

After introductory remarks, participants visited the Vrlovka Archaeological Park and enjoyed an interesting and innovative presentation of cultural heritage. Using an interactive augmented reality-based multimedia application they were introduced to enhanced visuals of around 20 archaeological artefacts, experienced the process of archaeological excavations in a virtual world, got to know how it felt when the pre-historic settlements and forts were built and immersed themselves in the stories of waters from the Neolithic to the modern day.
