The project

The Terra Lemnia project aims to build a common vision for sustainable development of Lemnos Island based on conservation and restoration of the extensive agro-pastoral practices that favour local biodiversity and shape the unique landscape of the island. These practices are mainly characterised by, and organised around, the element of traditional ‘mandras’.
