ETMI was part of the regional initiative “Tree of Friendship” launched by The European Fund for the Balkans (EFB) which involved planting 400 trees in all regional capital cities.
The idea behind it is to compensate for the damage by CO2 emissions which occurred due to EFB’s business travel in 2019, reads the press release.
A special significance of the “Tree of Friendship“ action was joint regional connecting and acting by the organizations dealing with eco-activism, with much experience working in local communities:
