Starts4waterwill support artists, researchers, technology experts and other stakeholders in finding a common ground and language to respond to regional water – related challengesFocusing on clean water as a basic right for all humans and on the conservation of life in our oceans, seas and marine life, STARTS4Water builds on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 and especially on SDG 6 ‘Clean Water and Sanitation’ and SDG 14 ‘Life Below Water’.


Adriatic Garden | aqua_forensic 2.0 connects two places by the Adriatic Sea: Dubrovnik (HR) and Koper (SI) and gives special attention to our commitment to the values of care, compassion, environmental justice, action-taking and cooperation with the Adriatic Sea and its creatures. The project framework is the aqua_forensic, an ongoing art and science research method developed by Robertina Šebjanič (SI) and Gjino Šutić (HR), which sheds light on the presence of invisible anthropogenic chemical pollutants in the water environment.


Biotechnology in environmental conservation and development – experimental research/educational program for children and youth.
The program includes an integrated series of weekend workshops for elementary and high school students. Through workshops and field ecological research that were performed on the island of Lokrum, children and young people were introduced to the preservation and development of the environment (sea and land) by modern biotechnological methods.

Green Dub(rovnik) – an experimental scientific research program for the development of new technologies for afforestation of fire-exposed areas. The program includes the development of “self-germinating capsules” for seeds and an automatic distribution system for the same. The program is also of an educational nature.

Contemporary infectious diseases – personal and public health – program is intended primarily for young people (high school students) and parents from the county as direct users who learn in an interesting way – through practical laboratory workshops about advanced immunology, modern dangerous diseases that pose a threat in the local area and methods of personal and public health care.
The program includes 8 workshops for young people on interesting topics (Biosafety, Personal and Public Health, Cellular and Molecular Immunology, Medical Biochemistry, Viruses, Prions, Bacteria, Fungi, Parasites, Zoonoses, Vaccines, Modern Pharmaceuticals and Medical Chemistry). The program also includes classes in a veterinary clinic, a series of film evenings and a final workshop – a panel discussion for parents held by young participants in previous workshops.

 Green roofs – an experimental research project – research into the potential use of photosynthetic microorganisms as a biological coating (biofilm) for roofs. Theoretically, biofilm is a practical solution for adapting the roofs of houses and buildings into green areas, which reduce the greenhouse effect and thus contribute to mitigating the effects of climate change.
