Thank you GTI Portugal!

Global Tree Initiative (GTI) Portugal was formally launched in June 2021.

Until early 2023, the group was focused on creating and sharing educational content on social media.

Having spent significant time together, the team retired from their GTI Portugal responsibilities. They are continuing their service in support of environmental and educational projects in Portugal.

Thank you so much to all those who made the GTI Portugal team over these two years:

Ana Luísa Ribeiro, Afonso Dinis, Bárbara Pedro, Beatriz Dinis, Inês Chaby, Inês Lacerda, Joana Oliveira, Madalena Lopes, Maria Zacarias, Tiago Carrilho, Tiago Jesus, and Vasco Valdez.

Thank you for the time you dedicated to sharing valuable educational content with your audience.

At the moment, Portugal is without a regional coordinator. If you’d like to know more or get involved, you can reach out to Kika Gusmão, our project specialist and former regional coordinator in Portugal.

You can still visit our GTI Portugal Facebook and Instagram pages, and read the Portuguese content that our team created!


Please share this. Thank you!
