Greifswald Mire Centre
Our vision is a world in which
- peatlands are recognised and understood as vital and vulnerable systems,
- natural peatlands are conserved,
- degraded peatlands are restored,
- any use of peatlands is sustainable.
Our mission: The Greifswald Mire Centre is – as an interface between science, policy and practice – innovator and originator in solutions for peatlands, locally and worldwide.
We are more than 50 peatland experts of various disciplines concentrated in one place.
We offer science-based solutions for social challenges such as
- Climate crisis: Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from peatlands and ecosystem-based adaptation
- Ecosystem services: Identification, quantification and monetisation
- Biodiversity protection: Conservation and restoration of peatlands worldwide
- Sustainable use: Implementation of paludiculture and innovative financing
