In October 2013 three enthusiasts established the Exploratory society of Milan Robič to broaden horizons of spirit and publish a book on the teaching about wisdom Gnothi seauton (2016). However, our top achievement happened in 2018, when we restructured ourselves as a legal person and renamed ourselves into the Tourist society Natura 2020.
Our focus on technological progress (IT) we stress by 3D modelled solution. We developed our own presentation of 24-metres high Grand Šumik waterfall in the TaleUp application for smart phones.
A trademark of spiritual experience of energetic hiking Natura 2020 Premium is promoted on the website of empowerment ‘Back to nature, back to origin’. Namely, we are proponents of the virgin forest Šumik and 400 million years old mountain creek Lobnica, a humming pearl of the Pohorje mountainside.
The cultural production consists of a series of 22 surveys/books, published for donors’ own needs. Artistic reproduction is presented by permanent photographic exhibitions of decorative wallpapers of dimensions 5 x 1.8 metres at five spots. They are exhibited in the Guesthouse Ribič (Amazing virgin forest Šumik and Enchanted Pohorje Sleeping Beauty) and Elementary school Janko Glazer Ruše (Water sprite Jezernik and Beauties of Slovenia). We also entered a competition of the Administrative unit of Ruše (Wedding destination Natura 2020). We have our own YouTube production. We are present on all important social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube).
We are all volunteers. Our extra power are our respested members. A strategic partner is Jože Hertiš, a founder of a company SELTRON. We are supported by the Slovenian Tourist Board. We are also members of the Tourist Association of Slovenia. Media sponsor of our 10th anniversary is the morning programme of Toti radio.
Our commitment is to take care for natural, cultural and technical heritage, which encompasses not only the first Drava hydroelectric power plant Fala, but also a railway dowry – the freight locomotive TDR MICA. Natural scientific dowry is presented by sustainable ecosystem of the Pohorje mountainside-Drava river-Kozjak mountainside. Cultural heritage includes historical personalities, such as a pharmacist professor Franc Minařik, a poet Janko Glazer and a glassworker Benedikt Vivat. Namely, all of them were born on the banks of 400 million years old mountain creek Lobnica, which flows through the virgin forest Šumik and creates the highest Slovenian waterfall on non-carbonate soil. A mythical dowry is expressed in Pohorje folk tales about enchanted Pohorje Sleeping Beauty, water sprite Jezernik and brigand’s bride.
By high-tech solutions we enact a zero carbon footprint, because we present beauties of unspoiled Alpine, Dinaric, Pannonian and Mediterranean world directly in our users’ living rooms.
Our ideal client is a Hollywood star Charles Keanu Reeves. We do not receive budgetary money. We spend all funds received from our supporters for noble purposes. Every autumn we strive to enable a panoramic ride with a tourist train and fan requisites I FEEL sLOVEnia for pupils of the Elementary school Janko Glazer and their parents, who participate at the chestnut picnic.

A major partner was RULIK, while among participants were the Apiculture society Ruše, Society Natura 2020, High school for drawing and painting Ljubljana, as well as the Elementary school Janko Glazer. This year we play a role of promoter of the photographic project MINAŘIK’S LOBNICA RAPIDS, where we are supported by Photo club Maribor and Elementary school Janko Glazer.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I was born in 1959 on a farm, my great-grandfather was a landowner. We soon moved to the largest Slovenian village of Ruše, where I still live today. The father and mother were family idols, the brother was an electrical engineer who was killed by lightning in broad daylight in 1986.
I graduated from the Janko Glazer primary school in 1974. I graduated from the secondary technical engineering school in 1978. Today, I have a degree in economics (2009). I was first employed by a local company, TDR. I had the status of a private researcher of the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Slovenia in the field of management (1994–2000).
Since 2016, I am the author of the Gnothi seauton wisdom teaching/book. I compiled it from a survey covering 22 books (COBISS). In my research, I used the dialectical theory of social systems. prof. dr. Matjaž Mulej was introduced to Asian culture by Buddhist leader Džongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, also known as Khyentse Norbu, Tibetan/Bhutanese lama, director and writer. I studied the Babylonian organizational culture while working in Iraq during the period 1982-1986. Official Prof. dr. Šime Ivanjko believes that Gnothi seauton’s doctrine of wisdom belongs to the economics of virtue ethics, which is less known to economists.
I started the story about high added value of intellectual property experimentally, in Slovenian presidential elections in 2012. I wrote a book on that exploratory mission entitled I will become a president of the state, which was published in the same year. I enriched ENTRY TO THE MARKET of Slovenian presidential elections in 2017 in resounding manner on the Radio-television Slovenia.
