Winners of 2017 UN Climate Solutions Awards
„Peatland restoration in Russia“ is lighthouse activity!
13/10/2017 The Greifswald Mire Centre was most happy to hear: Peatland restoration in Russia is one of 19 winners of the United Nations ‘Momentum for Change’ Climate Solutions Awards 2017! The project is spearheading the restoration of peatlands in Russia, thus reducing the incidence of fires in peatland areas and the resulting CO2 emissions and smoke particulates.
Michael Succow Foundation and Greifswald University, both partners in the GMC, are strongly involved. Out of 460 applications 19 ground-breaking initiatives from around the world will be honoured at the UN Climate Conference (COP23) in Bonn in November.
