Throughout the program an evaluation of its activities is carried out so that the awareness campaign adapts to the needs of the local communities. For this purpose, a research was performed in the form of questionnaires at the beginning of the program. Towards the completion of the project, this second survey is being carried out, which aims to make qualitative and quantitative assessment of the changes in population attitudes towards biodiversity and NATURA 2000 areas, as well as the evaluation of their desire to develop and support Environmentally beneficial economic activities as a result of project actions.
