The will of the 60 founders was to create a knowledge platform as a link between three realities that revolve around forest fires: research, the operating world and society.
Environmental education in La Jonquera
After the great forest fire, 13 education and awareness workshops on forest fires are held in the schools of the 13 municipalities affected by the fire. In this edition, 250 boys and girls participate in this MEFITU program - The Mediterranean Forest, the Fire and You (MeFiTu)
With the first projects co-financed by the European Commission, the expansion of this new vision of forest fires to researchers and technologists of renowned European research centers begins. The programs in which we have participated are FPARADOX, H7, DG ECHO, SUDOE-INTERREG, POCTEFA-INETERREG.
The possibility of actively collaborating with the Foundation is opened through the Network of Members. The members become a fundamental pillar for us, they are part of the engine and the concerns that move us.
We position ourselves internationally
More than 700 people responsible for forest fires and emergencies from 32 countries participated in the congresses organized by the Foundation in Barcelona. This event opened the doors to us internationally.
