This paper presents the principles of ecovillages in Europe and in Slovenia. Source

Aging of Population and Issues of Long-Term Care: New Possibilities for Employment and Education Slovenia does not pay enough attention to long-term care sector. Slovenia does not have regular law based area for the long-term care since. There are a variety of laws determining many different aspects of long-term care that do not conform to each other. Therefore, unity of Organization and financing is impossible. With the international ADCOMP project we try to develop mechanisms for adjusting the professional competencies in care services for people with dependencies in long-term care. Source
