1 Tree for every kid on Ikaria
It is well known that Ikaria is still a green island, with a large variety of plants and trees. Nevertheless the nature on the island is facing multiple problems, among others due to dry summers and free roaming and grazing goats. With this background it is difficult to protect the nature of the island and to plant trees.
Where this is done, the trees do need protection, long-term dedication in watering and loving care.Nevertheless, some local associations on Ikaria are taking initiatives to plant trees with the aim to give nature a long lasting future on the island.
«Friends of Ikaria» would like to support these activities, as these projects match our goals of supporting sustainable projects that protect the environment and the nature on Ikaria.
Who we are
The group «Friends of Ikaria» started its activities in 2015 in Brussels and aims to bring together Ikarians living on the island and “ex-pats” living abroad – as well as those people who like the island and have established a personal link with it.
Via our activities we hope to attract further ‘Friends of Ikaria”, who like our approach: acting together to support projects on Ikaria.
«Friends of Ikaria» intends to bring together Ikarians living on the island and abroad as well as non-Ikarians who like the island and have established a personal link with it, wherever they may live.
