Improving wetland knowledge
and developing tools to enhance protection and restoration of Europe’s wetlands. Focused on biodiversity.

A holistic approach

WET HORIZONS brings together people from different backgrounds (including wet and peatland experts, biomodelers, and policy analysts) with the goal of restoring Europe‘s wetlands.

Collecting data

WET HORIZONS aims to fill in crucial knowledge gaps about wetlands. The data collection will also include a citizen science component.

Tools for large scale restoration

Using the collected data, WET HORIZONS will create tools and guidelines that will fast track large scale restoration of Europe‘s wetlands.
