It is an honour for Nido Legal to be a part of the “Breath for the Future” campaign launched by the Agriculture and Forestry Ministry of Turkey in cooperation with the Turkish Foundation for Combating Soil Erosion (TEMA).
Dr Mehmer Kurt, our Turkish lawyer and the team, have taken part in the campaign by donating several saplings to the Antalya plantation areas in order to support planting activities in Antalya, Turkey through TEMA.
TEMA (Türkiye Erozyonla Mücadele Ağaçlandırma ve Doğal Varlıkları Koruma Vakfı or Turkish Foundation for Combating Soil Erosion in English) was founded in 1992 by UN Environment Award Turkish businessmen, Hayrettin Karaca and Nihat Gökyiğit.
With over 450,000 voluntary members, TEMA is a leading NGO in Turkey. TEMA is also one of the winners of the first UNCCD (UN Convention to Combat Desertification) Land for Life Awards.
TEMA has been known for some famous projects such as Oak Project, Memory Forest, Bodrum Türkbükü Biological Diversity and Vegetation Project, and TEM Highway Vegetation Project.
As a law firm specialising in supporting start-ups, and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), we believe in action and commit our resources to environmental protection and sustainable development goals for a better world.
