The IV Ecotourism Fair NATURCYL 2021 World Forest Day was celebrated on March 21. The fourth edition of NATURCYL which will be held from September 24 to 26, will be dedicated to the conservation of forests as an essential resource for the survival of a large part of the world population and the planet's biodiversity.
NATURCYL will celebrate its fourth edition from September 24 to 26, 2021 in the district of Ruesga, municipality of Cervera de Pisuerga in the province of Palencia, in the surroundings of the Montaña Palentina Natural Park. This appointment will be a great opportunity to claim what is necessary to do proper management of all forest ecosystems.
NATURCYL It aims to raise awareness about the health and environmental problems caused by the destruction of forests. Show visitors the relationship of human beings with nature through the lungs of the Earth.
Forests cover a third of the earth's surface and play a fundamental role in the life –and future– of the planet. They represent the main source of food, medicine and fuel for more than 1.6 billion people around the world. In addition to helping to respond to climate change and protecting soils and water, from a biological point of view, forests are the most diverse terrestrial ecosystems: they are home to more than three quarters of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. And yet, in 2019 alone we lost the equivalent of a football field of primary rainforest every 6 seconds.
In this 4th Edition, NATURCYL It will have forests as its guiding thread, as an instrument for the conservation of biodiversity, as a tourist resource, as a relaxation element for this society in need of a healthy life or as an economic resource for our rural world. Forests give us raw materials such as wood, paper, mushrooms, grasses, cork, resin, fruits, active principles of many medicines. They are buffers against possible pandemics, CO sinks2They regulate the climate, the hydrological cycle, purify water, prevent erosion, avoid flooding, and are sources of biodiversity. In addition, they are places of recreation, of environmental education, they help to heal our bodies and minds.
NATURCYL It is celebrated in an autonomous community such as Castilla y León, one of the regions with the largest and best preserved forest mass in Europe. The place where it is located NATURCYL, is a place surrounded by splendid Cantabrian forests, a spectacular space in the mountains of Palencia.
Experts, technicians and forest managers will help us understand what the sustainable management of forest masses is like and how these ecosystems can be used for proper development of the surrounding populations.
NATURCYL will also be a forum for the exchange of ideas and business opportunities between professionals and lovers of ecotourism, nature and the rural environment from all over Spain, and this year also from beyond our borders, since international destinations will attend.
