Good examples, successful measures and new ideas are called for the 3rd international scientific and final GreenNet conference of the EU project GreenNet – Promoting the ecological network of the European Green Belt (http://www.greennet-project.eu).
Registrations are possible until 20 May 2014. We are calling for practical or scientific short papers with pictures or posters, showing successful cooperation along the Green Belt until 15 March 2014 to email@example.com.
The European Green Belt as a multifunctional ecological network has a unique natural and cultural heritage with an emotional human and political history, meaning and transformative power. It is a corridor full of biodiversity hotspots in a more and more fragmented, intensively used and degraded European landscape and connects people from 24 European countries and a great amount of valuable landscapes.The concept of ecological networks developed from a single nature protection strategy over decades to a comprehensive strategy including cultural, social and economic aspects. It delivers value and multiple benefits from nature to people and society as well as the adaption to climate change.
On the practical level onsite there are diverse examples and inspiring new ideas at the European Green Belt, as successful nature conservation, agricultural rezoning, community supported economies like markets with typical local products and food, sheep stocks or regional money, , historical “smug-gling-tours”, walking and cycling paths, contacts to the transition movement, nature movie festivals, working with schools and students …We are looking forward to your ideas and contributions!

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.
The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...

Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago.
