Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Iran, Digital Activism, Environment, Protest, Youth

Green blogs are a valuable source for understanding Iran's nature and environment, its problems and challenges. Green bloggers actively take part in campaigns to protect [1] nature and animals. They publish articles, stories, and photos, and they organize conferences and demonstrations. In this post, we look at green activism in Iran through the eyes of bloggers in last year.

Here are some photos of artistic environmental activity to protest against the destruction of nature and hunting of animals.
