We invite to join us in the first REWET event on the role of inland wetlands and peatlands in mitigating climate change.
The REWET consortium is glad to invite you to its first online workshop “Resilient Wetlands: exploring the role of inland wetlands and peatlands in mitigating climate change”, taking place on 22 November 2023 from 10 to 12.30 CET.
In this online event, REWET researchers will share with the audience scientific insights on the greenhouse gas fluxes in wetlands, as well as an overview of the global status of peatlands and of EU policy related to wetlands restoration.
Join the meeting and support the REWET project climate change mitigation through wetlands and peatlands restoration!
