The Participate-Links in german and english lead to the 2020-Version - is this wanted? -- 08:43, 15 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

I was bold enough to correct myself. Does this give any extra points? :) --Ordercrazy (talk) 13:31, 15 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

Name "Priroda"[edit]

Where does the name "Priroda" come from? What does it mean?

It seems to be the Russian word for "nature" or "the nature". I do get the connection between nature and protected areas, but why (if the name is indeed from there) a Russian word for a writing contest about areas in Switzerland? (Nothing against the Russian language, just curious how that came to be.) Or is the Swiss Priroda-Dossier part of a larger, international initiative? --das-g (talk) 08:51, 16 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

Guten Tag, Das-g, Du hast das gut herausgearbeitet; das ist alles richtig was Du schreibst. Und: Tatsächlich soll der Name neugierig machen, weil man es hier in dieser Region und den damit verbundenen Sprachregionen nicht unbedingt kennt. Es gibt keinen weiteren Zusammenhang.
