The highest values of each country are its people and its space. Montenegro - Ecological State has a great potential in the rural areas in ecological, economic and social terms. The population living there adapts to the growing needs and initiatives, often in a way that may impair the values of these areas.
On the other hand, the importance of forestry as an activity that is based on unbreakable bond between man and forest with its gifts is huge. The role of forests in protecting biodiversity, water regulation, provision of renewable energy sources and combating climate changes is immeasurable and unique. We live in a time when knowledge of the whole mankind doubles every two and a half years, and the rapid technological progress reaches into all aspects of society. It would be wise to take advantage of all that in terms of sustainable development of areas that are "outside the city walls".
People in these areas often feel that they have been forgotten by society. They should be respected, encouraged and helped to fight for a better life and a healthy environment. It is an investment for the future in which our Association for Development of Rural Areas and Forestry – UROS, will try to help them.
