18 Jun Global Peat Press Project (GP3) Campaign kick off
A coordinated media campaign from Eurosite member North Pennines AONB Partnership to promote the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) and toward the UNFCCC COP 26 through the work of organisations throughout Europe and beyond, the Global Peat Press Project (GP3) campaign brings together international partners to highlight the importance of peatlands as vulnerable but valuable ecosystems.
The aim of the campaign is to demonstrate the role that peatlands play in the fight against climate change, the importance to restore degraded peatlands into healthy ecosystems, and give site managers restoring peatlands the opportunity to showcase their work and demonstrate their success so that others can learn from it and be inspired to do more.
The campaign kicked off following the launch of the UN Decade on June 8th – starting in the United Kingdom and run until the UNFCCC COP26 in November 2021.
