There were no major disagreements during the work on the public debate, but a lively discussion ensued and the public debate resulted in a consensus reached on about 1 specific proposal to amend the proposed content of the future LSRR document:
1) In the sector area “Quality of life”. In the field of ecology, a discussion was held regarding the need to establish a new institution for the education of educators. The discussion referred to the assessment of whether it is necessary to form a new institution or whether it is possible to use existing institutions in this area. It was agreed that it is more rational to use the existing institutions, which would create a joint capacity by networking and pooling their capacities, which would be adequate for the realization of this function. In addition, the need for continuous water control in Koviljsko-Petrovaradinski rit was considered due to the sensitivity of its ecosystem and it was proposed to form measuring points with sensors for automatic monitoring and data collection on the quality of marsh water, and that the proposed network institution should cover this function as an element of the development of ecological awareness and responsibility towards the natural heritage of this territory.
