Elliniki Etairia - Society for the Environment and Culture

Country

Greece

Elliniki Etairia - Society for the Environment and Culture, as its name suggests, has been active in the fight for the preservation of the environmental and cultural heritage of our country since 1972.

In the fight for the preservation of the environment, on account of the complex ecological and environmental crisis which the world is experiencing.  In the fight for the preservation of culture, because on the one hand the causes of the environmental crisis are cultural while on the other the monuments created by traditional societies are usually admirable in themselves, often embodying an attitude to life which has much to offer in relation to today’s environmental concerns.

For this reason Elliniki Etairia has from its inception been concerned not only with traditional but also with contemporary culture, especially where this has something positive to contribute to dealing with the complex environmental crisis of our time.
