The EXIT Foundation and Green Revolution member organizations appealed on Friday for a reforestation of Serbia on a massive scale, recalling that planting trees is the simplest and most efficient response to climate changes.

An open letter called the Serbian government to draft a national plan with the aim of planting trees on at least 40 percent of the country and impose a moratorium on the felling of trees and destruction of green areas.  

The letter said that the goal of increasing forested areas is above all ideological, racial, national, religious and political differences. It also expressed the wish to see the initative expand to neighboring countries.
