MEP organizes seminar in Brussels on Slovakia's Tichá and Kôprová valleys

Slovak MEP Irena Belohorská has organised a seminar in Brussels for July 3 where the current risks being faced by the High Tatras National Park after the 2004 windstorm and the efforts being made to restore the natural environment will be examined.

Participants of the Windstorms in National Parks and the Consequences of Active and Passive Management seminar will discuss differences in the understanding of biotope damage and the interests of environmental activists in dealing with the effects of natural disasters.

Belohorská decided to organize the seminar after visiting these valleys on June 1 with Environment Minister Jaroslav Izák.

Agriculture Minister Miroslav Jureňa and his deputy Jaroslav Jaduš will speak at the seminar.
