Liana rule change

June 1, 2019 admin

In the past annual meeting Liana decided to make a change in its rules. The change will have a better balance between improving the state of the environment and human well-being, and it allows people who are not ‘development professionals’ to join the organisation. With the rule change the organization will be more open to all kinds of skilled and enthusiastic people who are willing to join and do something through us.
