ECOLOGICAL

CALENDAR 2019

 

 

From long time the protection of nature ceased to be concern only one state. Eco days and eco holidays are important now not only in the calendar of each country, they began to celebrate around the world.

In this selection, we have identified only Europe and International environmental days and we suggest you to check, if exist any such days where you live.

 

2019 will mark the beginning of the UN Decade of Family Farming, drawing more attention to the people who produce more than 80% of the world's food but whose own members, paradoxically, are often the most vulnerable to hunger.
