HELMEPA returns to the island of Astypalaia for the Children’s Book Festival
It was with great pleasure that HELMEPA visited for the second time this year the island of Astypalea, responding to the kind invitation of the organizers of the 2nd Children’s Book Festival.
On Wednesday 5 June, we coordinated cleanups of two of the island’s beaches, combining the celebration of the World Environment Day and the launch of the Festival. The young volunteers, 95 students of the Primary School and the Kindergarten of Astypalea, along with their teachers, parents, festival organizers and representatives of the Municipality, cleaned up the beaches “Livadi” and “Pera Gialos”. The actions were also part of the campaign “Let’s Clean Up Europe”, coordinated by HELMEPA in Greece.
Environmental activities on the island have increased and HELMEPA is looking forward to continue supporting the efforts of environmentally aware local residents.
