NEYMO-NW at the nature reserve festival Zittauer Gebirge
The team members from LfULG took the opportunity to introduce the NEYMO-NW project at this year’s nature reserve festival »Zittauer Gebirge«. The event was organized by the Landschaftspflegeverband Sachsen e.V. and took place on the 14th of July 2019 at the Kammbaude in Oybin.
Numerous informative discussions with the visitors of the event and the distribution of a specially developed questionnaire helped the NEYMO-NW staff got to get an impression of how much the residents of the project area actually know about climate change, water resources, and especially drought and low water. With this knowledge, further publicity actions, such as a traveling exhibition with roll-ups on the topic drought and low water can be better planned and implemented.
