2 groups of students (about 20 students) were trained.
The students will then carry out water quality tests at about 5 monitoring points.
Such field trainings provide an opportunity for students to assess the river and its basin district and to realize the human influence. Thus, they understand more deeply the need for water protection.
The students’ findings and remarks will be collected in a report which they will develop within their field trainings.
