This was the 9th year for MEdIES to have collaborated with the Mission Water Environmental Programme and GWP-Med* to implement educational activities in schools and teacher trainings. This year’s activities took place mainly in the wider area of Athens from Januarly 2017 to June 2017 and in the island of Kithira on 11-13 December 2017.

As in previous years, the educational activities in the schools targeted mainly primary and early high school students, aiming to inform and sensitize them on the issue of water saving, particularly through the revival of the traditional practice of rainwater harvesting and the greywater recycling. Our approach is experiential and discovery-based. At the end of each intervention in the class the educational poster “Water cycle in the town” is disseminated to students.

In Kythira, 303 students and 19 teachers participated in the project's activities. Ms Iro Alampei and Mr Vassilis Psallidas coordinated the activities in the island.

Additionally, a plethora of educational activitiers for students and teachers were carried out in Athens in which 1659 students participated while 372 teachers have been trained in the respective seminars and events. The activities in Athens are coordinated by Mr Vassilis Psallidas.

 

 

* The overall Rainwater Harvesting Programme is led by GWP-Med within tthe wider environmental programme Mission Water (APOSTOLH NERO) of the Coca Cola System in Greece.

All educational activities are organised in collaboration with the Departments of Environmental Education (EE) of Primary and Secondary Education of the respective Directorates of the Ministry of Education, Research adn Religious Affairs.
