first_imgU rujnu, točnije, 23.rujna iz Nedelišća ispred Nacionalnog gimnastičkog centra Aton će startati nekoliko stotina biciklista na premijernom izdanju Panamure i zaputit se kroz šume, vinograde, polja i preko cesta do Mađerkinog brega. Radi se o Panamura Adventure Race, odnosno #Panamura je brdsko-biciklistička (MTB) utrka kroz Međimurje podjednako namijenjena za rekreativce i profesionalce.Panamura Adventure Race organizira Međimurski biciklistički klub Mura uz Turističku zajednicu Međimurja. “On over 76 kilometers of trails, we have placed two official refreshment zones, several unofficial ones, a mountain finish, a passing sprint finish along the Mura, but also several demanding and interesting, hitherto unexplored, paths and trails.. From the most famous hill of Međimurje we descend the Mura, and along the sandbanks of this untamed river towards Mursko Središće. From the northernmost Croatian city we run back to Nedelišće through vineyards and forests and come to the cycling festival in Aton and in Mesap. ” ističu organizatori.Panamura is not only a race but also an investment in the future and tourism.For years, Međimurje has been known as the county and location with the most investment in cycling tourism, from the development of hotel accommodation, private and apartment, all the way to tracing and development of trails, roads and bicycle roads. By investing in cycling tourism, Međimurje is placed on the map as an interesting destination for transit tourists to the Adriatic, and at the same time attracts new guests and provides new content. Bike races, cycling marathons, trails and events are just a part of the infrastructure and content that every cyclist is looking for.e-bike race as a special attraction Uz klasičan MTB maraton koji dozvoljava nastup sa MTB biciklima veličine kotača 26″, 28″ ili 29″, Panamura uvodi i novost. Paralelno s biciklistima natjecat će se i e-Bike biciklisti na biciklima tipa “pedalec” koji potpomažu vozaču, naravno u vlastitoj kategoriji. E-Bike tipovi bicikala, kao i turizam orijentiran na takav tip vozila na mala vrata ulazi na turističko tržište europe, ali zasigurno će biti važan faktor u odabiru destinacije budućih cikloturista.From Nedelišće to Štrigova, along the Mura from Sv. Martin to Mursko Središće, through vineyards and forests, the Panamura Marathon invites amateur cyclists, recreational cyclists, professionals to pedal and experience this professionally organized marathon and see for themselves what their limits are. But it is more important than the competition to show the direction of development when we talk about cycling tourism and how tourism can be developed on the continent throughout the year.last_img read more

LETTERKENNY AND DERRY SHOULD ESTABLISH NEW NORTH WEST UNIVERSITY, SAYS ELECTION CANDIDATE

first_imgThe LYIT campus – could it be a university?Sinn Féin Councillor and general election candidate Gary Doherty says he wants to see a new North West University – with campuses in Derry and Letterkenny.Doherty will be a third candidate for his party in Donegal in next February’s general election when it is rubber-stamped by party colleagues.Cllr Doherty, who himself is a former graduate of University of Ulster Magee, says that a greater cross-border approach to course delivery could have the potential to yield significant economic and societal benefits which, in turn, could strategically advance Irish higher education on an all-island basis. Cllr Doherty said:“LYIT and University of Ulster Magee are two institutions of reputable standing, not only here in the Northwest but internationally. Collectively, they have brought a number of economic and societal benefits to the region as well as having provided a great number of educational opportunities to those wishing to avail of further and higher education locally.”“Notwithstanding this, I believe that there is even greater potential to exploit further benefits from both colleges if a more joined up and collaborative approach to course delivery was employed: this could be facilitated through both LYIT and Magee entering into an Alliance or Cluster agreement.”“I believe that this can be achieved through greater co-operation between the Higher Education Authority, the Department of Education and Skills in the south as well as the Executive’s Department of Employment and Learning in Belfast: each of which have a responsibility in the governance and regulation of higher education on this island.” “In essence, what is needed in order to assist this process is for the government here to explore the possibility of introducing legislation which would act as a legal instrument – without compromising institutional autonomy – to give effect and recognition to such alliances between the relevant institutions while also setting out their core objectives.”“I feel that there is an appetite for such a measure, not only from students and the institutions themselves but also from other key stakeholders including the wider business community. In fact a report compiled in 2009 by Indecon International Economic Consultants, highlighted a need to further augment higher education in the region in order to make it more attractive for high-value added activities such as software development and business services.”“Past experience has taught us that joint initiatives between LYIT and the University of Ulster, such as the MSc in Innovation Management in the Public Services, enables candidates to gain dual accreditation namely an MSc through University of Ulster and a HETAC Level 9 in LYIT, and this is both beneficial to students and attractive to potential employers.”“Taking this all into consideration, I have asked my party colleague Deputy Pearse Doherty to raise this issue with the Minister for Education in the Dáil in which he’ll be asking the Minister what plans the government now has to assist with the development of greater inter-institutional collaboration going forward.”“Potentially, such an alliance could pave the way for the creation of a North West University – something which Sinn Féin has in the past expressed their support for and which would be funded on a cross border basis consisting of twin campuses – this has the potential to bolster higher education provision in the Northwest region as a whole and improve the region’s overall density of higher education attainment.” LETTERKENNY AND DERRY SHOULD ESTABLISH NEW NORTH WEST UNIVERSITY, SAYS ELECTION CANDIDATE was last modified: October 15th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:LYITmageeUniversitylast_img read more
