Spotlight on Vanishing Virgin Forests of Romania – Brussels, Nov. 8, 2018

The largest tracts of virgin forests within the EU are found in Romania. But due to industrial logging, corruption and corporate greed, this most valuable European natural heritage is rapidly vanishing. Forest destruction even occurs within national parks and Natura 2000 sites.

However, very few people are aware of this major nature crisis. Therefore, EuroNatur Foundation and Romanian environmental organisation Agent Green will come to Brussels to raise the alarm and deliver first hand evidence of the logging of virgin forests to both the European institutions and the public.

On November 8, 2018, EuroNatur and AgentGreen will create a “spotlight on vanishing virgin forests of Romania” in Brussels with the following events: 

Banner action in front of the European Commission building: Schuman square / roundabout, 8:00 – 9:00am.

Film screening “Out of Control” (video series about scandalous logging in Romania’s national parks) – and discussion. Kamilou in Mundo B (Rue d’Edimbourg, 26,
1050 Bruxelles), 19:00 – 21:00pm. Entry: free.

Please join us in Brussels in support of Europe’s last virgin forests and share!

And there will also be an expert conference “Europe‘s last virgin forests”, hosted by MEPs Thomas Waitz and Benedek Javor, in European Parliament, Room number ASP5E1. 15:00 – 17:00pm.  (Please note: participants need to register in advance: thomas.waitz-office@ep.europa.eu); deadline: November 2, 2018).
