F.2.Networking with other projects
TREMEDAL proposes to organize a network for information and experience exchange with other projects (LIFE III, LIFE +, or others relevant to the objectives and proposed actions). This network will also include organizations with experience in the restoration and management of habitats targeted by the project
Some projects and organizations that should be included in the network are:
- LIFE10 NAT/ES/000572 “Ecosystem Management of Izki oak and related habitats and species of Community interest” (PRO-LIFE Izki).
- Boreal Peatland LIFE Restoring boreal peatlands in Natura 2000 areas in Finland (2010-2014, Finlandia)
- LIFE06NAT/UK/000134 – “Active Blanket Bog in Wales” (2006-2011) LIFE04 NAT/IT/000177 – Danta2004 – Safeguard and showing off of the peat-bogs in Danta (Cadore)
- LIFE 04 NAT/IE/000121 – Raised Bog Restoration Project (2004-2008)
- LIFE 02 NAT/IRL/8490 – Active Blanket Bog Restoration Project (2002-2007)
- LIFE02/NAT/FIN/008469 – Finnish Aapa Mires Life Project (2001-2006). Best LIFE Nature Project 2007-2008
- LIFE00 NAT/UK/007078 – Restoration of Scottish Raised Bogs Project
- LIFE00 NAT/UK/007075 – “Restoring active blanket bog of European importance in North Scotland” –
- LIFEPeatlands Project (2001-2006). Best LIFE Nature project 2007-2008
- International Mire Conservation Group (IMCG)
- Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS)
- International Peat Society
- Society for Ecological Restoration
- Pôle Relais Tourbieres (Besançon, Francia). French National Centre for sustainable resources of peatlands under the Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development.
- Irish Peatland Conservation Council (IPCC)
- Universidad de Dundee.Department of Geography, Environmental School
- Drents Museum which maintains their website “The Mysterious Bogpeople” bogpeople.org, in relation to cultural aspects and paleo environmental studies.
Fundamentally the exchange of experience and information will be done through electronic and telephonic means but also through visits to address issues to be dealt with directly in the field. The following is also proposed:
- Creating a database of European players and media related to bogs and hygrophilous environments and a TREMEDAL mailing list.
- Sending information on the LIFE + TREMEDAL project to the mailing list (Tremedal mailing list).
- Linking the main European players and habitat projects covered by the project Web page.
- Making a technical visit each year to LIFE projects related to TREMEDAL. These visits will be attended by representatives of each of the partners (two visits per beneficiary over the course of the project).
- Invitation to representatives of these projects to see the sites and if deemed appropriate, to participate in any of the workshops or project meetings.
