iSea

The iSea team of marine biologists, educators and conservationists are working to preserve biodiversity in vulnerable marine habitats. The organisation takes part in EU funded projects that aim to increase knowledge on sustainable management of marine and coastal areas.

Thessaloniki
Greek Eco

Greek Eco believes in transforming global climate change concerns into local, sustainable action. The citizen-led organisation informs and organises community activities such as beach clean-ups and tree planting.

Edessa
Pozar thermal baths

Pozar thermal baths have been a destination for rejuvenation and well-being for centuries. Today, the Pozar baths exemplify a truly sustainable spa and are part of a regional heritage network of thermal springs.

Pydna-Kolindros
Axios Loudias Aliakmonas Delta National Park

This lagoon is one of the most important wetland systems in Europe. The national park is also at the forefront of critical efforts to prepare for and better protect nearby cities - like Thessaloniki - from floods and other extreme weather patterns linked to climate change.

Struma
Lake Kerkini

At the heart of the dense, marshy national park is an artificial lake, that has created a stunning natural environment with rich biodiversity. Different aspects related to the protection of the area were tackled during the project supported by the EU, and today the area is lived by birds and buffalos and can safely be visited by humans.
