WORLD TOURISM DAY

The purpose of the holiday, founded by the UN General Assembly on September 27, 1979, is to popularize tourism as an aspect of the general and world economy, highlight its contribution to the protection of the environment of the world community, and strengthen friendly relations between states. Countries that have ratified the provisions of the UN General Assembly on International Tourism Day, including Ukraine, celebrate the holiday by holding various festivals and interesting events.

The popularity of tourism is explained very simply: tourism is a benefit in all directions. It not only contributes to the prosperity and well-being of tourist regions, actively supports the high level of cultural enrichment that travelers receive during their trip, but also gives a huge boost of vital energy.

Nature-based tourism is gaining more and more popularity in Transcarpathia, which is an important factor in raising environmental awareness and culture among citizens. One of its most relevant areas is birdwatching.

Birdwatching or ornithological tourism is surely the second most popular in the world after hiking tourism. Birds are the most visible and brightest representatives of the animal world. It’s not necessary to go to the forest, mountains, or river to watch birds. Many of them live near us, and it’s easy to observe them by hanging a feeder outside the window.

Activists of the volunteer center “Everyone can help” held a workshop “Making feeders”. The workshop revealed how to make feeders of different types (open, closed, automatic) from available materials; introduced to birds that willingly visit feeders; advised which treatment should be offered to birds.

After the workshop, several feeders were placed on the territory of the county yard. Decorative feeders were made with the participation of volunteer Sandra, and the children took them home. This will remind them of the feathered inhabitants of nature and will serve as a window into the world of exciting birdwatching.

The event was held by an IERS expert with the participation of children of IDPs as part of the cooperation of the Institute of Ecological and Religious Studies- IERS (headed by Alexander Bokotey) and the German Nature Conservation Union (NABU Bundesverband NABU International ), project coordinator Ivan TymofeievNataliya Kulya (IERS).
