12. Ob sotočju Kokre in Save – At the confluence of Kokra and Sava
The program covers the renovation of the building on Cankarjeva street 2 in Kranj. The old town of Kranj in one of the oldest inhabited areas in Slovenia. The building is part of the city center, which like most Slovenian cities, is protected as a monument of local importance. Cities like Kranj require renovation of buildings that preserve cultural heritage but still serve in modern day. In this program we focused on the renovation of the building that has been abandoned since 2006. Due to that the space has been unfit to host any cultural or educational institution. With the help of European cohesion funds city of Kranj was able to finance the renovation of said space. The building will be dedicated to two cultural centers – The Music School of Kranj and The Public Fund of the Republic of Slovenia for Cultural Activities in Kranj, that previously did not have proper spaces for their activities. At the confluence of Kokra and Sava with the following guests:
Matjaž Rakovec, mayor of city Kranj
Matevž Remškar, conservator of Kranj unit of the Institute for Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia
Tatjan Dolžan Eržen, Museum Councilor for Ethnology in the Gorenjski muzej

10. Alternus Cloaca – Alternative sewer
The C0 sewerage system is a project involving three municipalities – Ljubljana, Medvode and Vodice. The construction of a new 12-kilometre long sewer will transfer most of the wastewater from these three municipalities to the main sewage treatment plant near Ljubljana.
The project is estimated to cost around €130 million, with the European Union as the main investor, followed by the aforementioned municipalities and the Republic of Slovenia. The project has been criticised in recent years by environmentalists, political parties and the owners of the land on which it is being built. Critics of the construction are concerned that the new sewerage system will pollute drinking water sources if it fails and that several mistakes were made in the permitting process.
The programme focuses on: civil engineering, surveying, hydrology and environmental protection.
Zoran Janković, Mayor of Ljubljana
Krištof Mlakar, Director of Voka Snaga
Dr. Nataša Atanasova, professor at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodesy.

9. Particles are in the air
The program covers the Sinica project, financed by the EU Cohesion Fund. The project aimed to improve the network of air quality monitors around Slovenia and broaden the range of particles they can record. We also gain additional information on the different types of monitoring devices used. Since the introduction of the idea to build an incinerator in Ljubljana, this type of awareness of the air quality is even more important. However, not all can agree on whether or not having information on the air quality is enough to guarantee a safe environment for all. Lastly, we cover building awareness of the locals on air quality and whether or not the project does enough to educate and empower people. We host the following guests:
Janja Turšič, employee at the Agency RS for environment and worker on the project Sinica
Tomaž Gorenc, Director of the Institute for health and environment
Jaroslav Škantar, from the Electroinstitute Milan Vidmar.

7. Nad Dravo stoji, pol prenovljen - It stands above Drava, half renovated
The program covers renovation process of the Borl Castle in Haloze region in Northeastern Slovenia. The Borl castle is one of the biggest and the oldest in Slovenia and in the broader region, but due to the malnourishment and poor infrastructure it has been falling apart for almost a decade. With the help of European cohesion funds that financed two projects involving the castle’s renovation (Drava: Obnova in oživljanje gradu Borl and ZaDravo) it is currently undergoing restoration and renovation, which will hopefully help the Castle regain its initial function – to connect the local people and make the region more attractive to tourists. This is even more important, because Haloze hills are a region with significantly negative population trends. It stands above Drava, half renovated with the following guests:
Sonja Golc, president of the Borl Castle Revival Society
Dominik Bombek, Senior Adviser of the Regional Development Agency for Podravje – Maribor

6. Vsi enaki a ne zares enakopravni – All equal, but some are more equal
The program covers introduction and implementation of the European disability card, in Slovenian named European card of benefits for invalids, that aims at embettering the accessibility of services for invalids and handicaped people in Slovenia and eight partner EU countries. The program is structured in two parts. Firstly we learn about the first phase of the project (2015-2017); its conception, realization and challenges that applicants and participles faced. Secondly we adress the ongoing stage of the project (2021-2023), where we discuss the methodology of assessing the accessibility of buildings and surroundings, renovation and actualization of the national service of providers and necessary improvements on the promotion of the project. In the concluding part of the program we critically assess the project with the help of the users; Slovenian invalids and handicaped people. All equal, but some are more equal, hosts the following guests:
Maša Malovrh, specialist for online accessibility at Beletrina literary agency, project co-partner.

5. Nič več veličastne Povodnji v Železnikih – No More Great Floods in Železniki
The program covers an European Union cohesion project, titled Reduction of flood risk for the Selška Sora river sub-basin (up to Dolenja vas) – reduction of flood risks in the potential significant flood risk area of Železniki. Železniki are a small town with population of three thousand people, which were devastated by floods in 2007. The occurrence of floods in Železniki is relatively high, since the town had been previously effected by high waters in years 1979, 1990, 1992, 1993, 1995 in 1998. The radio program focuses on how a local government and public institutions can, with the help of European cohesion funds, can work together to reduce flood risk for the Selška Sora river. The topic was discussed with the following guest experts:
Andrej Golob, a hydrologist at Slovenian Environment Agency (ARSO)
Anton Luznar, the mayor of Železniki
Bojan Drnovšek, the head of the project at Slovenian Water Agency

4. Šola za rešetkami – School behind the bars
In broadcast we discussed education of prisoners, its legal background and problems that arise in educational process with sociology professor at Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana Milica Antić Gaber and director of Cene Štupar – Centre for education Ljubljana, that implements education in prisons, Bojan Hajdinjak.
3. Zajeziti bobre – To Dam the Beavers
The program covers the financing of Institute Lutra, organization for preservation of natural heritage, that focuses mostly on protecting species like otters and beavers. The Institute is a part of the LIFE Beaver project, which is partly financed by European Commission in wish of protecting the environment and fight the climate crisis. The Ministry for Environment and Spatial planning has certain concerns when it comes to co-financing the LIFE Beaver project. Institute Lutra planned to obtain the amount, that is not covered by European Commission, by applying to the appeal issued by said Ministry. Thinking they obtained required resources, Lutra announced they have the rest of the funding covered, thus fulfilling conditions of European Commission to release the rest of the funding. The only thing missing was the signature of minister Andrej Vizjak, but the final step hasn’t happened. In case the contract not being signed by the minister, Institute Lutra will be left without a part of finances, they need in order to continue the project LIFE Beaver that started in September 2020. The radio program focuses on interweaving the following experts in environmental field:
Marjana Hönigsfeld Adamaič, researcher and founder of th e Institute Lutra
Mihael Jožef Toman, university professor at the Department of Biology, Chair of Ecology and Enviroment Conservation
Goran Forbici, director of CNVOS, Centre for Information Service, Co-operation and Development of NGOs

2. Pohorske lisičje zagate - Pohorje golden fox mess
The program covers different topics in Pohorje hills, focusing especially on the Golden fox trophy (Alpine skiing world cup for women). The Golden fox trophy is a legendary sporting event in maribor that has a history of over 50 years, but due to the lack of snow, the organization committee was forced to move the races from Maribor to Kranjska Gora six times in the last 10 years. Global warming forced the committee to change the racing piste and cut down around 500 trees to make the terrain in the upper part of Pohorje ski resort more suitable for ski racing. Consequently the environmental activists warned about recklessness of such actions in light of the climate crisis. The problem is even more paradoxical, because Pohorje is included in EU cohesion project Vision Pohorje 2030 – Pohorka. The radio program focuses on interweaving between tourism, professional sports, environmentalism and biodiversity with the following guest experts:
Tone Vogrinec, the architect of slovenian and yugoslav professional alpine skiing
Nike Kranjc, research fellow from The Slovenian forestry institute
Sebastjan Štruc, coordinator of the Vision Pohorje 2030 – Pohorka project from the Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Conservation

1. Naredimo mokrišča spet veličastna! - Let's make wetlands great again!
Project KRAS RE.VITA focuses on rejuvenation of the Cerknica Lake and Planina field. The goal of the project is to improve living conditions of certain animal and plant species, and also attract new tourists to the area.
Lake Cerknica is one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe. It appears every year on the karst plain, caught between the Javorniki hills and the Bloke plateau on one side, and Mount Slivnica on the other. During the dry season, the lake disappears, which enables paddling, fishing, hiking or grass mowing in the same area in just one year.
The lake normally stays on the Cerknica plain for about eight months a year. Water usually spreads over the surface of 20 km2, but at its fullest, the lake covers a surface of about 26 km2. When full, Lake Cerknica becomes the largest lake in Slovenia.
Radio program focuses on agriculture, environmentalism, endangered species and how to attract new tourists into this region of Slovenia.
Matevž Podjed, director of Notranjski regijski park (Notranjska regional park), and leader of project KRAS RE.VITA.
