Sustainable development concept in the monastery Klisura
SOCRATES PROGRAM for the ERASMUS Intensive Program for the academic year 2006/2007
The Institute of Structural Engineering (IKI) at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna (BOKU) and the Forestry University in Sofia were continuing the Intensive program “VITA NOVA” in the monastery of Klisura in Bulgaria. The monastery of Klisura is situated north from Sofia, close to the town of Berkovitsa. Next to the town the base Burzyia is placed, which is a Research Department from the Lesotechnical University in Sofia. The monastery was built in 1240 and destroyed during the Turkish invasion. Since 1869 it is reconstructed. MONASTERY KLISURA

For starting the second phase of the VITA NOVA project we were organizing already a joint meeting in January 2007, between the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna (BOKU) in cooperation with the Lesotechnical University in Sofia.

The very idea about this international student-workshop in July 2007, was to develop sustainable projects over unlimited growth, fostering new economic concepts for the future of the monastery Klisura and also to preserve nature cultural heritage. During the Intensive program the students were working on projects like regional development, making proposals for restoration of buildings for new functions and also elaborating dates for future economic activities and concepts for the monastery.
