Talk by Richard Hargreaves: Mountains and valleys of Kosova, Montenegro, Albania in the proposed Balkans Peace Park
November 25 @ 19:30 - 21:00
In most but not all years since 2002 Richard Hargreaves has been trekking, on foot or mountain bike, in the Prokletije/Bjeshkët e Nemuna mountain range which straddles northern Albania, southern Montenegro and western Kosovo/a. It is a unique, spectacular landscape, relatively unspoilt by European standards. In this talk, using slides from many years of travel in the region, Richard will journey westwards from Kosovo/a to Albania, showing the limestone scenery, some flora, some people and their villages, and discussing issues of history and environmental politics, all within the framework of the Balkans Peace Park Project (B3P).
