The Declarations on the Ecological State of Montenegro and the Protection of the river Tara were signed along the river Bukovica. The two declarations were signed by civil activists from several civic initiatives, actions and non-governmental organizations, which joined the struggle for the nature conservation.

At the meeting, they discussed current problems and agreed to joint action.

Participants of the meeting stated that the preservation of natural resources from any destruction must be above all divisions on any basis and the common goal of all of them.

"We must not allow ourselves not to be present where nature calls and we must be assured that we leave the descendants to enjoy what our ancestors left us. No one here is against the state, but for its preservation, because citizens can only benefit if we turn to sustainable development, and not in the way they have imagined - by killing rivers, mountains, lakes and the sea," said participants in the meeting who spoke with media representatives about improving the cooperation.

"We are signing the Declaration on the Ecological State of Montenegro and the Declaration on the Protection of the River Tara, as an act of permanent commitment to sustainable development and protection of the public interest of future generations. Civil responsibility obliges us to participate actively in the decision-making process regarding the environment, and by this act, we want to prove our love for our Montenegro, commitment to the development vision of the ecological state and the determination to preserve natural resources from every aspect of destruction and abuse. By signing these declarations, we are jointly moving to action, turning to the future and with the goal of Montenegro becoming globally recognizable by sustainable development and democratic values," the declaration says.
