What's New?

Open lectures will be advertised in universities and to potentially interested NGO-s. Participation in such lectures will be free of charge for everyone. In parallel with the peatland congress, international peat and peatlands related movie festival will be held. The festival would be open to the general public. Prior to the peatland congress, international peat and peatland related photo contest will be held. The best pictures will be presented during the congress and winners will be announced.
