The northern part of the island of Gran Canaria benefits from Alisio winds and mountainous terrain, which provide sufficient humidity to support forested areas. These forests are crucial for the island’s ecosystem and provide opportunities for environmental education and agroforestry initiatives.

RADECS 2024 has partnered with the local Foresta Foundation of the Canary Islands, engaged in reforestation projects with schools and unemployed individuals. Through this collaboration, new tree planting and environmental education activities will be facilitated. Given the recent wildfires in Gran Canaria, such reforestation initiatives are particularly important for the island.

The RADECS 2024 Conference has supported the planting of new trees on behalf of the RADECS community, receiving a certificate of appreciation.
