The photo competition "Biodiversity - Art of Life 2021" was held in Kozjan Park as part of the LIFE NATURAVIVA project, Biodiversity - Art of Life.

The photo contest had 2 age categories: authors up to 15 years and adult authors with 5 thematic sections: A – Landscape, B – Animal World, C – Plant World, D – Inanimate World, E – People and Culture.

The photo competition was open to all who submitted up to 10 photographs taken in 2021 within the borders of the Kozjansko Regional Park or the Kozjansko and Obsotelje Biosphere Region. 24 adults and 43 authors aged 15 and under submitted a total of 494 photographs.

Exhibition “Stories from Nature”

The exhibition "Stories from Nature" is based on the booklet of the same name, which was published in Kozjansko Regional Park at the end of 2020. It contains 11 interesting "environmental" stories, written by our biologist, Dušan Klenovšek.
Artworks complement the stories of pupils from primary schools in our protected area, who were invited to participate in an art project and the booklet's creation.

The exhibition "Stories from Nature" presents a selection of artwork created by children with crayons and a few interesting parts of each story, which we hope will inspire visitors to continue reading.

The exhibition panels in the corridor of the Castle Defence Gallery are decorated with selected works by pupils from the following primary schools: the Bistrica ob Sotli Primary School, the Maks Pleteršnik Pišece Primary School, the Podčetrtek Primary School, the Koprivnica Primary School, the Lesično Primary School, the Kozje Primary School, the Bizeljsko Primary School and Artiče Primary School. The exhibition is equipped with QR codes that can be scanned to read the full stories.

The booklet "Stories from Nature" is available free of charge at the Kozjansko Regional Park headquarters in Podsreda or at Podsreda Castle, and can be downloaded electronically from the Kozjanski Park website (www.kozjanski-park.si) and the Life Naturaviva project (www.naturaviva.si).

Stories from Nature is the result of the activities of the LIFE Naturaviva project (LIFE16 GIE/SI/000711), Biodiversity - the art of living.
