From November 2019 till March 2020 many public activities were organized within the Winter Eco Marathon in the framework of NarvaWatMan project. The activities took place in two cities: Narva (Estonia) and Ivangorod (Russia). The main goal of the Winter Eco Marathon was to raise people’s awareness regarding environmental issues within the Narva River catchment area, including the investigation of Narva River water resources, nuclear pollution in its catchment area, ecological state of the Gulf of Finland, etc. For that purpose, several lectures and educational master classes were held in Narva and Ivangorod schools, as well as in open access places (restaurant, Ivangorod fortress).
Within this long-lasting event researchers from Tallinn University of Technology have visited Narva schools with interactive lecture regarding the virtual water resources, and highly-qualified professionals from Saint Petersburg were invited to Ivangorod schools with lectures investigating hydrological characteristics of the Narva River, waste management within its catchment area, the fauna of the Baltic Sea, etc. In addition, master classes for development of water sports in Ivangorod and healthy cooking habits were held for Ivangorod citizens.
The marathon's participants and the winners of its different activities were awarded by project promotional gifts.
