Morigenos in Slovenian Magazine show

During our summer research camps we were visited by the Slovenian Magazine show crew from TV Slovenia. We spent an interesting day together, which you can see on Friday, 7 October 2016, at 17:30 on TV Slovenia 1.

Slovenian Magazine is a mosaic show in English and German. It presents current events in Slovenia, its cultural and historical heritage, attractive features of the landscape, and economic and tourist potential. Slovenian Magazine is mainly intended for foreign countries, as well as for Slovenians living around the world.

After being broadcasted on television the show is available for viewing here.

European viewers can watch the show over a satellite that carries the TV Slovenia signal.  The English version is on Channel 25 WNYE in New York every other Sunday at 2.00 p.m. The show is regularly broadcast by the educational programme SCOLA in the USA and the European satellite EbS. Slovenian Magazine is also part of the multicultural programme in Sydney, Melbourne and Buenos Aires. The show is also broadcast in Italian by Koper Capodistria, while individual topics appear on Euronews as well. The German version is on 3 SAT every other Monday.

Morigenos at Mediterranean Coast Week

From 23 September to 1 October 2016 Mediterranean Coast and EU Marco-regional Strategies Week will take place at the Slovenian coast. Numerous events are being organized by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, Government office for Development and European Cohesion Policy, The Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Conservation, and many local and regional stakeholders, including Morigenos.

Morigenos will organize two movie nights in Art Cinema Odeon in Izola. On Tuesday, 27 September 2016 at 21.00 you can join us for a documentary Plastik Fantastik. After the movie, the author Uroš Robič, will discuss the issue of marine litter. On Thursday, 29 September 2016 at 21.00 we will be showing the award-winning documentary The Cove, followed by a discussion with Morigenos researchers.

From 23 to 30 September 2016, Art Cinema Odeon will also host the photographic and educational exhibition about dolphins in the Gulf of Trieste.

The Post of Slovenia has positively responded to Morigenos’ initiative to publish stamps with motives of whales and dolphins occurring in the northern Adriatic Sea. In collaboration with illustrator Matjaž Učakar 4 new stamps portraying the bottlenose dolphin, short-beaked common dolphin, striped dolphin and fin whale were produced. A special event presenting the stamps will be held on Thursday, 29 September 2016 at 18.00 in Strunjan (Slovenia), at hotel Laguna. Nature Park Strunjan will also present a stamp with the motive of the Strunjan cliff.

Under the auspices of the Mediterranean Coast and EU Marco-regional Strategies Week, a two day Conference on connecting macro-regions and protected areas will take place in Strunjan on 29 and 30 of September 2016. At the conference, Tilen Genov from Morigenos will give a talk on connecting non-governmental organisations and managers of marine protected areas.
