Educational events

Environmental-educational lectures

The Slovak Caves Administration employees render on demand environmental-educational lectures within the framework of their working possibilities at the occasion of various events (Speleological Evenings in the Slovak Museum of Nature Protection and Caving, Earth Day, accompanying events during exhibitions, etc.).

Seminars

Since 2002 every year a seminar is organized for the speleological rangers, where except for vocational lectures on natural cave values, geology, geomorphology, biology and hydrology of caves, discussions are held on safety of movement in caves, methods of first aid and about cases of breaking the law.

A similar orientation have seminars for show caves guides, where except for their vocational improvement an emphasis is laid on the ways of environmental education in caves (higher quality of commentary in cave, methods of education, etc.). By now 10 such seminars were organized.
