At the end of the LIFE EX-TRA project, the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park organized an international closing conference. The aim was to provide the people involved in environmental conservation and in the protection of natural resources with some basic information and a “toolbox” of useful techniques for involving stakeholders and local communities in participatory management.

The final conference of the LIFE EX-TRA project included a participatory workshop developed with the “Open Space Technology” (OST). It was managed by a facilitator and involved over hundred persons active for various reasons in nature management and coming from different countries in the world. Similar to other participatory methodologies the OST is able to trigger creative learning processes and, differently from normal planning meetings, it creates a reciprocal sense of commitment among the involved persons. This is principally based on the desire of the participants to develop projects and initiatives in which they can recognize their own input.

The LIFE EX-TRA project took place between January 2009 and March 2013 in three Italian national parks (the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, the Monti Sibillini National Park and the Tosco-Emiliano Apennine National Park) and in different areas in Romania, Bulgaria and Greece. Based on the knowledge acquired in the previous LIFE project “Improving the coexistence of large carnivores and agriculture in southern Europe” (LIFE04NAT/IT/000144-COEX), of which the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park was a partner, the LIFE EX-TRA project offered the opportunity to transfer skills and good practices concerning the management of large carnivores onto other areas.

Per la conservazione dei grandi carnivori è necessario trovare un compromesso tra le esigenze delle popolazioni degli animali selvatici e le attività umane. Per questo motivo, nel progetto LIFE EX-TRA è stata posta particolare attenzione al tentativo di sviluppare un dialogo tra le autorità competenti e le comunità locali. In ogni Paese, mediante il ricorso a metodi propri delle scienze sociali sono stati individuati i problemi più urgenti e i principali gruppi d’interesse coinvolti dalla presenza dei grandi carnivori.
