Our Project

Environmental preservation has become one of Europe’s firm commitments for the 2020 Agenda. In addition, it is also deemed a cross-cutting objective concerning the quality of life of European citizens. 

“Goals and mission”

1. Raising awareness regarding the need of care and protection of the forests and enhance the capacity of European citizens to face this current challenge of forest, which are nowadays threatened not only by environmental and water pollution, but also, very particularly, by frequent major fires throughout Europe, especially in the Mediterranean basin. It is important that European citizens understand the whole dimension of the impact of fire in the environment. Further to the temporary impact in term of fire, there is a long term and global impact in terms of flora and fauna of the forest, acidification on the rivers and acidification of our sees and oceans.

2. The protection of citizens against the risk of human losses in forest fire catastrophes. Europe is becoming increasingly committed to the protection of citizens and this is the main objective in the case of forest fire catastrophes. We can saw dozens of dead people in the big fires across Europe (Greece, Spain, Italy…), which means generally a lack of knowledge on how to proceed in case of being caught by a fire.
