Protect our forests, help us save the air we breathe

by Manos Emmanoulopoulos & Georgia Lavda (The WGIU Team)

We are working together with „Let’s do it Greece“ to plan and execute the reforestation. Round 1 took place on December 18 on the beautiful Athens mountain of Imittos under adverse weather conditions and 250 trees were successfully planted! The next round will take place either towards the end of February or in March depending on the weather.

Donations go directly to the procurement and planting of new trees in lieu of forests that have been depleted through wildfires and other human or natural methods.


Please note that the reforestation will take place later in the fall and we will communicate the details so that anyone interested can physically attend as well.

The area will not be around recent wildfires but around areas that were burnt a few years ago and have been deemed appropriate for reforestation.

A few years back, we started Why Greece Is Unique in an effort to promote the various facets of our beautiful country. It is now time to step up and protect what we love most. Climate change is real and it is taking over our planet as we speak!

More than 10 million people live in Greece permanently and more than 30 million visit every year. Let’s all contribute to the fight against climate change today! Deforestation accounts for 15% of GHG emissions annually.

Let’s put an end to it together by planting trees to replace those that were lost in the wildfires.
