This was the 10th year for MEdIES to have collaborated with 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 February 2018 to June 2018, in Thessaloniki city (April 2018) and in the island of Kalimnos and Agathonisi on 28 Octover - 2 November 2018. Totally we reached to 2425 students & 307 teachers.

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 practice. Our approach is experiential and discovery-based. At the end of each intervention in the class the educational poster ‚ÄúWater cycle in the town‚ÄĚ is disseminated to students.

In Kalimnos and Agathonisi,  280 students and  76 teachers participated in the project's activities coordinated by Vassilis Psallidas.

In Thessaloniki 286 students and 31 teachers were engaged (access the report)

In Attica, a plethora of educational activitiers for students and teachers were carried out in which 1859 students participated while  200 teachers have been trained in the respective seminars and events. The activities in Athens are coordinated by Mr Vassilis Psallidas.

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.

The activities are under the educational component of the Non-Conventional Water Resources in the Mediterranean Programme led by GWP-Med and supported by the Coca Cola Foundation (in Atlanta).
