ITKI Austria and The Maria Nobrega Foundation has launched 'Gmünd the Austrian City of Ponds' project. In Gmünd, Lower Austria we can look at a 700 year history of pond construction and carp cultivation. A pond represents a reflection of run offs and a magnificent symbiosis between nature and man. This knowledge is preserved until now and ITKI Austria would like to distinguish the knowledge barer and net fishers with a distinction.
The International Traditional Knowledge Institute Austria is starting one of the biggest environmental projects in Gmünd, lower Austria. The project is based on the reforesting of the forest, planted one century ago. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the human need to rediscover the nature and interact with it increased. Activities in open air are crucial for our physical and mental health.
