The goal of the project is to ensure the participation of the LOB and the general public in strategically important decisions regarding nature protection and sustainable management of natural resources.

To achieve the goal:

1) The LOB will be represented in advisory councils and working groups related to the areas covered by the LOB strategy: conservation of species and habitats, sustainable management of natural resources.

2) An evaluation of the policy planning documents (at least 2) will be performed and the public will be informed about it.

3) 40 video stories about the experience of LOB members in civic activities and nature-friendly behavior have been prepared.

4) The public is invited to participate in decision-making processes and civic activities by participating in at least 5 public consultations, paying attention to the implementation of regulatory enactments and applying to the local government for the arrangement of wildlife treatment and rehabilitation system.

5) The work on LOB participation in decision-making processes is explained by regular information on social media and media.

6) Cooperation with other interest groups representing common interests has been implemented, agreeing on a common position with other most active nature protection organizations and seeking opportunities for cooperation and expression of common views also with farmers', forest owners' and hunters' organizations.

7) Opinions have been provided on draft regulatory enactments corresponding to the areas of activity of the organization, acting on the situation and need.

It is expected that the implementation of the project will strengthen the society`s willingness to participate and the confidence to influence decision-making processes themselves.
