HELMEPA and Axion Hellas sign Memorandum of Cooperation
Today, Wednesday 12 September 2018, Dr George Gratsos, Chairman of the Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association – HELMEPA and Mr Vassilis Pateras, President of the Non Profit-making Organization Axion Hellas, signed a Memorandum of Cooperation at HELMEPA’s offices.
The purpose of this Memorandum is to develop cooperation between the two entities towards promoting the importance and value of protecting the marine and wider natural environment, to local communities that Axion Hellas visits in remote areas and/or border regions of Greece, which due to their distance from large urban centers, lack easy access to activities or events.
The means to accomplish this objective will include the organization of awareness raising activities with speeches and presentations to adults and kids, dissemination of information material, coordination of voluntary cleanups and projection of ways by which we may all contribute to the protection of the marine environment.
The cooperation begins next week with the participation of HELMEPA’s scientific staff in the scheduled activities of Axion Hellas on the island of Psarra and Volissos in Chios, from 19 to 22 September.
