During the first CHERPLAN Steering Committee meeting in Idrija a press conference was held, aiming at promotion of the project among local stakeholders. The project was presented by Mrs. Serena Cutrano (Friuli Venezia Giulia Region), Mrs. Maja Majnik (Municipality of Idrija) and Mr. Janez Nared (Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts). The press expressed its interest in the objectives of the project and particularly in the benefits that might ensue for the inhabitants of Idrija. As a matter of fact, in the attempt to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Idrija has already undertaken numerous activities aimed at improving the living conditions in the city centre, focusing on quality improvements in the field of infrastructure, traffic and reconstruction of the existing built environment. Main objective of Idrija Municipality in this project is preparation of a well structured management plan for the pilot area.
