A new visual identity of the project ”Biodiversity and Water Protection Lake Palic and Lake Ludas – Ecolacus” was presented at the recently held 42nd International Belgrade Tourism Fair. It was created with the help of students of the Polytechnic School and ”Svetozar Markovic Gymnasium ” in Subotica. A survey was organized at the stand of the City of Subotica on that occasion. About 200 visitors to the fair participated in this survey.
– We wanted to make the long-term significance, importance, and substance of the Ecolacus Project known to the public through a unique name and logo. The best solutions and visions come from young people. This way, we teach them and encourage them to protect the environment. – said Ervin Molnar, Head of the Project Implementation Unit.
The aim of the project “Biodiversity and Water Protection Lake Palic and Lake Ludas”, for which the funds from a donation of the Government of the Republic of Germany were provided, is to improve the water quality of Palic and Ludas lakes as a prerequisite for the creation of better biodiversity conditions and for tourism development-enhancing potential of this area.
– Participation in such a big event has allowed us to check, but also to confirm that we are heading in the right direction in terms of project goals. We are pleased that over 65 percent of survey participants know that one of the goals of the project is finding a solution to the wastewater treatment issue. There are 98% of them who think that solving the wastewater issue, but also not-throwing garbage all over the lake are, can contribute to the preservation of the lake. Over 78 percent of the surveyed people said that after the successful implementation of the project, Lake Palic would be again available to swimmers. The most important to swimmers, when they come to the lake, is the clean lake water (63.8%) and quiet environment (25.5%) – explained Ljubica Bertovic, Head of the Tourism Development Sector at Park Palic Ltd., at whose stand the survey was conducted, adding that about 98 percent of surveyed people consider education on water and biodiversity protection important.
