Help restore desertified and burned land in the Mediterranean and fight climate change.
An effective action for climate
By joining the Mediterranean Green Belt you take concrete action against climate change. You also answer the call of the United Nations to restore 350 million hectares of degraded landscapes and forestlands by 2030. This would eliminate 5% of the world’s CO2 emissions from the atmosphere each year. While waiting for a reduction in emissions, eliminating some of our CO2 from the atmosphere is one of the most effective solutions we have today to curb climate change.
We will now restore 1,473 hectares more and plant 1.3 million trees, from the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the south of Spain, near Malaga, to Sainte-Marguerite Island, facing the French Riviera town of Cannes, in France. We bring new life to deforested, desertified and burned land by restoring vegetation. Vegetation absorbs CO2 emissions from the atmosphere, lowers the local temperature, prevents desertification and protects biodiversity.

Desertification and fires are transforming Mediterranean landscapes, wiping out biodiversity. Mediterranean countries have stressed the need to restore at least 8 million hectares of forestlands and landscapes by 2030. The Mediterranean is the most visited region of the world but it’s also a region of the world that suffers the most from climate change.
We plant trees, protect young shoots born from natural regeneration, take measures against fire, create ecological corridors for the movement of species.Your donation will help improve the natural environment of the Mediterranean and bring us all a step closer to protecting our climate.
