The European Green Belt, our shared natural heritage along the line of the former Iron Curtain, is to be conserved and restored as an ecological network connecting high-value natural and cultural landscapes while respecting the economic, social and cultural needs of local communities.



Four Main Regions

The European Green Belt includes four organizational regions: Fennoscandia, the Baltic Region, Central Europe and the Balkans. Each section is coordinated by a Regional Coordinator. The responsible persons in the individual countries are known as National Focal Points.

The tasks of the Regional Coordinators are to

  • support and facilitate the implementation of the programme of work in close cooperation with all National Focal points and National NGO Partners,
  • organise, implement and chair Regional Meetings,
  • prepare reports on activities and developments,
  • ensure regular communication with other players,
  • keep record of relevant activities,
  • stimulate and initiate concrete projects,
  • support national stakeholders in promoting the Green Belt and
  • lobby on different levels.
