Dolomie 2011 - Happy birthday Dolomites Unesco
The Dolomiti-Dolomiten-Dolomites-Dolomitis UNESCO Foundation now celebrates its second anniversary since being added to the list of World Heriage Sites, with an event dedicated to families and children on Sunday 26 June 2011 in Val di Zoldo, at Forno di Zoldo.
The area comprised within Zone 3: (Pale di San Martino - San Lucano - Dolomiti Bellunesi - Vette Feltrine) will be the natural setting for a series of outdoor events. The program is intense, kicks off each day at 8:00am and includes walks, horse riding, mountain biking, nordic walking, didactic experiences for the young and the possibility to find out more about the Dolomites World Heritage Site.
The event has been organised with Dolomiti Project geologists and DA Dolomites Adventure with the aim of raising awareness of the responsibility connected to being inserted in this prestigious list. Hence the name of the event, DoloMie, DoloMytes. Ever since being declared a WHS, everyone can rightly say "The Dolomites are MINE." Being aware of this, and knowing more about the natural resources, the geology and the walks all augment the love and desire to protect these mountains.
Bearing this in mind, the activities have been selected with a "eco-sustainable" criteria to help people visit and use the Dolomites while respecting and safeguarding the environment.
