Forests for the Future

The devastating fires that affected much of the country in August 2007 led the Foundation in the design and implementation of the program "It is our duty", the main axes of which was on the one hand the restoration of fire-stricken areas and on the other hand the prevention of similar situations in the future.

In this context, among other activities, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation in collaboration with Bodossaki and A.G. Leventis Foundation as well as WWF Hellas funded the 3 year programme "Forests for the Future" (website available only in Greek).

The programme included activities aiming to:

  • Upgrade the forest protection system of the country
  • Keep a continued vigilance for forests
  • Ecologically restore forest areas through local initiatives
  • Create social awareness and participation

7 scientific teams and 102 different legal entities, including universities, institutions, services, NGOs and associations collaborated for the implementation of the activities. Through the programme plethora of proposals, press releases and technical reports were published and numerous conferences and presentations took place.
