Join us for the first online event on agroforestry in Greece. We’ll be looking at the ways and means of purposeful reforestation.

About the Event:

This first online event aims to map the different aspects and initiatives on reforestation with trees for productive purposes, namely pasture, beehiving and recreation in Greece. Target groups are government officers, green-minded stakeholders, NGO’s, local-regional authorities and experts. There will be presentations on behalf of the speakers on various topics and a first attempt to derive comprehensive findings. These findings will feed the second, the third and last online event of this series.


This event is part of the Green European Foundations project Deforestation and Climate Change.

There are two more events to follow based on the different aspects of the same topic. The aim is to derive guidelines for the type of expenditures for productive reforestations needed to meet Climate Change mitigation targets (e.g. resilience of Mediterranean anthropogenic forest ecosystem).
