The Hellenic Initiative Canada New Leaders’ invites you to the upcoming webinar “Forests in Greece, Evolution and Present Condition”.

In partnership with the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature, HSPN’s President and Nature photographer Nikos Petrou will introduce us to the National Parks and Forests of the Greek landscape. Through his captivating imagery, we will be transferred to the dense foliage of the Greek forests, which vary greatly in type and flora varieties from area to area, and we will be introduced to the story of how they evolved to the state they are today.

This webinar is part of a collaboration between the New Leaders and the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature (HSPN), a Greek organization that focuses on preservation of Greece’s landscape and natural resources, as well as collaborating with other organizations on programs that promote sustainability.
