Third VIMOMA workshop

24. 4. 2023

The core of the third VIMOMA workshop held in Serbia was the interpretation of cultural heritage and the creation of experiences for visitors.

Visiting natural protected areas should always bring fulfilment and, as such, a satisfying experience. Nevertheless, not all should be left to nature alone to achieve such an end goal: there is always work to be done by the managers and staff members taking care of the protected areas not only in terms of conservation but also regarding how any and all visitors can better profit from the experience. With that in mind, the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Novi Sad organised last 20-21 February 2023 the third workshop of the Experience design and nature conservation through VIsitor MOnitoring and MAnagement in protected areas (VIMOMA) project, funded by the International Visegrad Fund.

Themed “Heritage interpretation and experience design for boosting visitors satisfaction,” the 2-day workshop, held in Novi Sad, Serbia, was attended by personnel from national parks of Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia to grasp the basics of heritage interpretation, how to make better use of it through interpretative planning and implementation, how to structure and conduct interpretative guided tours, and how to adapt Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) to their protected areas tools and offer.

Our faculty is one of the researchers of this project and is represented by Dr. Alice Kozumplíková.
