The Green belt is an initiative of one of the largest international wildlife organizations -The World Conservation Union. The Green belt is 6800 km at length and it crosses 22 countries, which makes it the “bridge” between all border territories in Europe, artificially divided in the past by the Iron Curtain. Isolation and inaccessibility of these territories has turned them into refuge of many endangered animal and plant species.
The symbol of the Green belt is supported by the efforts of governments, nongovernmental organizations and business representatives, aiming at conservation of those valuable natural territories and stimulation of sustainable development in the border regions.
