On the 2nd and 3rd of May Johanna and Marie Kårebrand participated in an informal LIFE meeting arranged by the Swedish LIFE project GRACE at the Koster islands, Strömstad. Other participants at the meeting were representatives from the Swedish LIFE projects MIA and MIRDINEC. We shared experiences about different economic and organizational issues. We further got the opportunity to see some of the restoration actions done by GRACE in the Koster area. Many thanks to Fanny and Bengt for the initiative and for a great meeting!
