Coming soon: a smartphone APP for Natura 20000 managers!
The LIFE Preparatory project, LIFE e-Natura 2000 Natura2000.edu, is creating a new Smartphone App to enable Natura 2000 site managers and private landowners to connect with each other. The App will enable users to discuss issues (and sometimes difficulties) that arise in the management of Natura 2000 lands. This practical tool will enable Natura2000 land managers to network across regions, countries, and land types.
The digital app will help Natura 2000 managers to identify issues, solve common problems that they face, communicate with each other directly, as well as learn about their professional development needs: for example, the App will act as a portal to a new online Natura 2000 Training Need Assessment (TNA) tool as well as a variety of other useful resources on the projects webpages.
App users will be able to create ‘self-profiles’ with their background, experience, areas of expertise and interests.
App users can identify individual Natura 2000 site managers and interact with other users based on the individual profiles, as well as by biogeographical zones, countries, and languages.
The App will follow all GDPR requirements and be representative of LIFE project’s goals and initiatives. Initial testing has already begun. The App will be presented at the Forum for the Future of Agriculture on March 31st, in Brussels, where interested participants can sign up to download the app and staff from project partner ELO will be available to answer questions and demonstrate it first-hand.
If you have any questions about the App or suggestions on features that interest you, please let us know. If you’d like to experience the App when it’s ready, contact Daniel.monteleone @ elo.org and you’ll be notified as soon as the innovative digital tool is released.
