A Day in Sombor's Wetland Journey

Restoring the Amazon of Europe

Today, on the International Day of Forests, we were in the heart of Sombor, inside City library "Karlo Bijelicki," where significant developments were unfolding. We have announced plans for the project “Restoring the Amazon of Europe.” The main goal is to revive nearly 36 hectares of the Upper Danube area, turning barren land into thriving floodplain forests. The venue was bustling with excitement as partners, experts, officials, NGOs, and locals gathered.
 
The day had two parts. In the morning, participants discussed project details. Forestry professionals outlined plans vividly, and there were discussions and feedback sessions.
 
As the day went on, the event opened to the wider community. A presentation on wetland importance shed light on the Endangered Seascape and Landscape Programme and WWF Adria's commitment to conservation in the Mura-Drava-Danube region. Partnerships formed throughout the day, pushing the project forward.
 
As twilight fell, a sense of accomplishment filled the air. It was more than an event; it was a catalyst for change. With hope and knowledge, the community aimed for a greener future.
 
Inside City library "Karlo Bijelicki," seeds of transformation were planted, with high school students leading the way. This marked the beginning of a journey towards conservation and community empowerment.
 
Supported by the Endangered Landscapes and Seascapes Programme, managed by the Cambridge Conservation Initiative in partnership with Arcadia, the charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin, the project aimes to rejuvenate the Mura-Drava-Danube Biosphere Reserve, recognized by UNESCO in September 2021.
