EUMA Sweden contributes to planting a rainforest!

EUMA Sweden has received a fantastic 40th anniversary gift from our preferred partner Nordic Choice Hotels. Take a look at it here.

Every second the earth loses an area of rainforest the size of two football fields with tragic consequences for both developing and industrial countries. Rainforest Rescue's Plant a Rainforest projects replant previously cleared areas of rainforest and establish habitat for the plants and animals endemic to the specific ecosystem, which protects its precious biodiversity. This biodiversity maintains our atmosphere and establishes the ecosystem upon which all of humanity depends, including rainfall generation and climate regulation. Rainforests also hold the key to new medicines of benefit to humankind.

We are very grateful to Nordic Choice Hotels for this valuable gift and we are very proud that our network can contribute to the global cause.

Check out the EUMA history page!

Have you seen our new EUMA history page?

Here you can find the jubilee publications from 1999 (25 years) and 2014 (40 years), as well as the film that was created for the 40th anniversary in March 2014?

Those of you who have been members for some time - take a trip down the memory lane and those of you who are new - you should be impressed and inspired!
