On 11 October 2023 from 10-12 a.m., the networking project "MoorNet" will introduce itself and its activities and provide an overview of its current status. The focus of this event is the new MoorNet website with a database of peatland conservation projects and funding programs in Germany, which will be continuously updated.
In addition to the protection of still intact peatlands, the restoration and sustainable management of previously drained peatland soils are important contributions for protecting biodiversity and the mitigation of climate change. In order to address these needs in a more targeted manner, the Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) published the first National Peatland Protection Strategy in September 2021. Together with DUENE e.V., partner in Greifswald Moor Centrum, Ecologic Institute supports the implementation of the National Peatland Protection Strategy.
