Ecoremediation educational polygons in Slovenia as good examples of experiential learning of geography
Mojca Kokot, Jerneja Križan, Ana Vovk Korže, Nina Globovnik, 2011, original scientific article

Abstract: Teaching in the 21st century is focused on learning for life and sustainable development. Lifelong knowledge, which is focused on education for sustainable development, could only be obtained with experiential learning, where students can come up with new knowledge through research and observation. Geography can bring many lifelong skills for students. Last years, the teaching of geography made great importance to education on environmental protection in nature itself. Therefore, this paper presents ecoremediation educational polygons in Slovenia. They are intended to offer young people the most authentic environment through direct experience in a real environment and in nature. On the educational polygons in real environments there are conditions for solving problems, while learning and doing research. Education on such polygons offers a great opportunity for young people to acquire practical knowledge, which can be used for effective decisions in life in relation to the environment.

New perspectives of the regional development of old industrial areas
Lučka Lorber, 2010, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The process of brownfield revitalisation still poses a challenge in the SEE area. It is delayed and hindered because of legal, financial, environmental and image problems. These areas of old industrial cities represent an underexplored economic value, are areas for investment and could be motors for job creation. In our paper we would like to present the main goals of the revitalisation process. The main long-term goal is to develop an internationally competitive business location that will be able to attract new businesses dealings in higher value added environmentally friendly production and knowledge based services, aiming thus at faster and stable economic development of the region.

The influence of tourism on the development of the Rogaška Slatina health resort
Uroš Horvat, 2001, original scientific article

Abstract: Avtor na primeru zdraviliškega kraja z dolgoletno tradicijo obravnava učinke turizma na razvoj in ustroj naselja, ki se je sredi 19. stoletja razvilo v enega najpomembnejših turističnih krajev v Sloveniji, nato pa z razvojem industrije in drugih mestotvornih dejavnosti še okrepilo svojo vlogo v razmeroma manj razviti pokrajini. V prvem delu so prikazane faze razvoja zdravilišča ter značilnosti turističnega obiska v Rogaški Slatini. Povdarjena je odvisnost od turističnega povpraševanja in ponudbe, pa tudi od spreminjajočih se ekonomskih, socialnih in političnih razmer. V drugem delu je predstavljen demografski, gospodarski in prostorski razvoj naselja. Ker je Rogaška Slatina gospodarsko polifunkcionalen turistični kraj, je povdarjen vpliv zdraviliško-turistične in industrijske dejavnosti na razvoj in sestavo delovnih mest, dinamiko prebivalstvene rasti ter ekonomsko sestavo prebivalstva in gospodinjstev. Opredeljene so posamezne funkcijske cone v Rogaški Slatini, zlasti tiste, v katerih sta turizem in rekreacija poglavitni obliki rabe prostora.

Slovenian economy on the way from independence to catching up average economic development of EU-27
Lučka Lorber, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: During the EU accession process, an intensive process of economic restructuring was taking place in Slovenia that was intended to secure Slovenia's incorporation into the common European market. At the time of adapting the legal and economic order to European standards, everyone was aware of the fact that successful EU spatial integration depends on the achieved economic power that is comparable to the average EU-27 economic growth. Slovenia's economic structure, determined by the GDP structure, is slowly approaching the structure of developed economies with the importance of agriculture and manufacture decreasing, and the importance of services increasing. However, financial and busines services, and technologically demanding sectors are growing too slowly. Structural changes of the Slovene economy have an affect on transformation of geographical space and create a new social-economic gravitational region. Functional and structural economic changes that resulted from social and political changes following Slovenia's newly-gained independence and its transition to market economy have changed the role of Slovenia in the common European economic market. Slovenia is to be found on a key development crossing, moving from an industrial to post industrial society. Slovenia's basic development goal is to exceed the average economic development of the enlarged EU by 2015 to be able to secure and improve social security, faster development in all its regions, and improve the environment. In other words strive for a better quality of life and overall human development.

New challenges of geography in cultural and institutional association within the European higher education area
Lučka Lorber, 2008, review article

Abstract: University of Maribor has in the last few years been an active partner in establishing and encouraging regional cooperation within Danube Rector's network and Alpe-Adria network. Geographers have helped form the policy and concepts of regional partnership and connecting of spatial projects and initiatives, particularly in the regions of Central Europe and Western Balkans. An example of good practice is the Central European network GEOREGNET, which enables mobility of professors and students and contributes to the understanding among people and cooperation in higher education. The new challenges of Geography in the establishment of Euroregions and formation of a European cultural area represent a new understanding of the importance of creating a network of institutional cooperation and education of geographers. Research and pedagogical work in the field of Geography enable development and implementation of internationally comparable post-graduate study programmes and research programmes. With the establishment of University Centre for Euro-Mediterranean Studies, Slovenia has assumed the responsibility and an active role in encouraging the cooperation of higher education institutions in order to accomplish the goals of the European higher education area and strengthen intercultural understanding, not only between the countries of Euro-Mediterranean region, but also in the sense of global regional associations.

Interdisciplinary methodological approach to the process of brownfield revitalisation of traditional industrial areas
Lučka Lorber, 2011, original scientific article

Abstract: Traditional industrial regions in the South-East Europe (SEE) represent an underexplored economic value. Revitalisation is delayed and hindered because of legal, financial, environmental and image problems. This weakens competitive investment position for cities and for SEE as a European region. This paper aims at presenting interdisciplinary methodological approach used in a brownfield revitalisation research project. The research work methodology applies the endogenous approach ("bottom up") on a basis of newly defined land use category of brownfields by the local community. Geography science enjoys an advantage of complexity of understanding spatial issues. This enables geographers to coordinate and harmonize interests between the owners, stakeholders, legislation and human resources. In addition to geographical areas (economic, traffic, demographic, environmental and regional geography) directly involved in the project applicative research, this also includes collaboration of architects, lawyers and economists. The form of applicative research work presented is being developed within the international Revitalisation of Traditional Industrial Areas in South-East Europe (ReTInA) project. The project is funded in the context of the SEE European Transnational Cooperation Programme 2009/12, involving ten partners from seven countries. The main result of the project will be the new methodology and tools to boost brownfield revitalisation in the municipalities and in old industrial areas of SEE region.

Opportunities for incorporating geography into the river basin management
Klemen Prah, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: Geography in Slovenia is not sufficiently involved in the management of river basins, since it has not won its place in the interdisciplinary education of water managers and has also not been sufficiently present in practice. We designed a model of geographical approach to integrated management of water resources which is presented on the example of the Sotla river basin. We considered the river basin with its inner diversity and heterogeneity as a basic spatial unit of management. To realize our commitments to the environment we need their spatial placement that can be offered by geography. This approach would be a supplement to present sustainable strategies of water management and it could be applied into practice by appropriate study programmes in geography.
