Humans are responsible for 90% of wildfires.
In the 20th century, Greece’s wetlands were reduced by 60%.
By 2100 we will have an additional 30 days on which there is a high danger of fire due to climate change.
This is the reason why we focus our efforts to communicate, raising awareness and advocacy to improve fire prevention measures. We have also started a public dialogue on fire economics by researching how the state funds are allocated, in order to strengthen transparency and accountability in funding, in partnership with the Mediterranean Institute for Investigative Reporting (MIIR), a programme implemented in the framework of the Active Citizens Fund of the EEA Grants.
