Summary :

As the challenges of climate change rise, Greece is facing an alarming increase in the frequency and intensity of wildfires. Annually, these fires threaten not just our environment, but also the livelihoods and lives of countless individuals. With little to no preventative strategies in place and a reliance on mass evacuations, smaller communities especially feel more than overlooked they feel abandoned. Many are compelled to protect their homes and become the primary defense against these fires, often without essential knowledge or support.
