Meeting with NGOs

Nature Iraq played host to a meeting of Environmental NGOs based in Sulaimani last Thursday.

The meeting provided both a time for much-needed conversation about the issues facing this area, and an opportunity for these organizations to get involved with the Green Festival.  While we didn’t manage to solve all of Kurdistan’s environmental issues (yet), we did manage to get at least two additional exhibitors for the Green Festival: the Green Kurdistan Association and Green Environment.
