The aim of the conference organized by the Hungarian Language Teacher Training Faculty in Subotica, University of Novi Sad is to give an insight into the work of institutions and workshops in Hungary and Serbia researching traditional ecological knowledge. Another goal of the conference is to initiate discussion on the methodological variety of research on traditional ecological knowledge, its plausible use in the context of heritage and community.

The project has been implemented in cooperation with the „Türr István” Museum in Baja and the Hungarian Cultural Institute in Vojvodina, its aim is to discover traditional ecological knowledge, by fieldwork and antropological research, collecting narrative research material, its organization into databases and the promotion of local use and application of the collected data.
