A SPECIAL ACCOUNT HAS BEEN OPENED: THE FUND FOR SAVING TREES IN KAUNAS

The Municipality of Kaunas has started removing mature trees from the streets of the city. This destruction is damaging the historical and cultural face of Kaunas. The concerned citizens of Kaunas have launched legal proceedings to defend the public interest and preserve the greenery of the streets and other public spaces (such as the large oak trees in the famous Oak Park), and also for the right of the people to participate in this process. Legal processes are costly. The Association "The Coalition of Environment Protection" has decided to open a special account, "The Fund for Saving Trees in Kaunas". The funds collected will be used for expertise and litigation costs. A funds utilization report will be publicly posted on the website http:/www.bef.lt, which belongs to Baltic Environment Forum (BEF Lithuania), and also on Facebook.

THE COLLECTED FUNDS CAN CREATE LARGER OPPORTUNITIES, SO ANY FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION CAN BE OF BIG HELP IN PROTECTING THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
