About 30 interested visitors attended the opening of the Citizen Engagement Activity „Capturing Beech Forests“ which took place on the 13th of December in the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development. It was organized by a BEECH POWER IVY volunteer.
„Capturing Beech Forests“ is a photo exhibition highlighting the high value of the lasts remnants of old-growth beech forests in Europe, by showing examples of their beauty, (bio)diversity and also the threats to beech forest ecosystems all around Europe.
Marcus Waldherr introduced the topic of the exhibition by presenting the BEECH POWER project while the guests were already enjoying the delicious buffet. The event was made possible thanks to the support and contribution of the Interreg Volunteer Youth Programme, the BEECH POWER project and the European Beech Forest Network.
