Dear Nature Fans,
As many of us know, urbanization, global warming, climate change, desertification and increased forest fires are among the main elements damaging the balance of nature. It is crucial to enable the “protection-use balance” so that next generations may benefit from the opportunities offered by nature and the species may continue to exist.
I believe that in order to take a step forward and implement policies for sustainable development and environment, the role of governments, local governments, private sector, and especially civic society gains great importance.
