Associació Sèlvans

People taking care of forests,

forests taking care of people

“Sèlvans” works to preserve the oldest forests of our contrades as well as primal rainforests across the Earth. 

After 10 years as a program, “Sèlvans” becomes an association in 2017.

Help us preserve the “old quarter” of our forests, a unique and irreplaceable natural heritage.

Please contact us under info@selvans.ONG (gladly in English) and we will present you a proposal.

Help us locate and preserve our last standing mature and old-growth forests. For nature, and for present and future generations.

SÈLVANS “People taking care of forests, forests taking care of people”.

If you want to know first-hand about SÈLVANS, and while we update our webpage, please don’t hesitate to watch the 12 – minute presentation we recently gave in the framework of an INTERREG program, to which we were invited as a “best practice” regarding initiatives of payment for ecosystem services

200 km and 6 stages to help take care of nature, and our beloved heritage… at your own pace!

SOS Costa Brava and Sèlvans, following the call of Alan Fortuny, sportsman, ecologist and adventurer, are organizing Protecting Homethe non-profit run, which has the aim of raising funds to help both our organizations deploy our missions: help both our most mature forests, and the Costa Brava. Because enjoying and loving nature also implies taking care of her. 

Taking into account actual circumstances, we’ve configured Protecting Home as an “OPEN” run, which means that you have 3 months to do the run, whenever you want, and at your own pace. By doing this we avoid crowding people together, and lower the impact on the natural heritage we aim to protect in the first place.

You can participate from September 18th 2020 until June 2021, pending mobility restrictions due to the pandemic.

You’ll find all the information and link to the registration desk at https://www.protectinghome.cat/

We would be very grateful if you could help us spread the word. Take care
