Call for Projects to celebrate World Wetlands Day 2024 in the Mediterranean

On 2 February every year, the world celebrates World Wetlands Day to raise public awareness of the importance of wetlands for humanity and the planet. To celebrate this important day, many events are organized around the world.

As part of its project funded by the French Biodiversity Agency (OFB), the MedWet Initiative is relaunching a call for projects to provide a financial boost for the Mediterranean actors in the realization of awareness and educational animations within the framework of the World Wetlands Day 2024.
